HERCOLANO

Nepalese hand-knotted carpet - 150 knot
100% Tibetan Wool + Chinese Silk
9' w. x 12' l. / 2.74 m. x 3.65 m.
- wool tiles with a raised silk pile


HERCOLANO was inspired by the black and white stone tesserae of a room in the Hospitalia (guesthouse) of Hadrian's Villa at Tivoli. The sinuous organic pattern of honeysuckle buds recall ancient Egyptian architectural ornament.

The design began with my photographic images of the actual room. Then, through a series of digital processes, each pixel was edited by hand to create an exact knot-by-knot pattern for the weavers.
