Tapestry executed in multi-colours with a bold abstract pattern, cartoon designed by Roger Kemp based on his paintings from 1960-1965. There are two warps per centimeter, and 15 weft threads to the bobbin. The wool is dyed with Ciba Geigy in the workshop, and the tapestry was woven using the high-warp method, (tapestry grew vertically).
