This exceptionally rare and well-preserved image has been expertly framed and mounted on an acid-free backing and enclosed in uv-plexi. The piece dates to circa the 3rd century BC, and depicts a "pampas cat." A similar example, very likely from the same mantle, was recently on exhibit in the Metropolitan Museum of Art (donated by Arthur Bullova, one of the founding members of the textile museum in Washington.)The last image in this listing shows the Met's piece for purposes of comparison. The image measures some 8 inches in width. Condition as noted in the photo. (Please note: the textile has been sewn to the backing, not glued.)
