  • Flanders Poppies II Belgian Wall Tapestry - W-169
  • Flanders Poppies II Belgian Wall Tapestry - W-169
Made in Belgium
This Belgian chenille tapestry features a single poppy that is not the Oriental poppy, with its opiate of forgetfulness, but the European field poppy. It signifies remembrance. The seeds can lay dormant for years, sprouting only when the soil is disturbed. They were remarked upon as early as NapoleonÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩÔøΩ__s campaigns, but became a lasting symbol after World War II. This was made legendary in the poem written by Canadian medical officer John McCrae ÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩÔøΩ__In Flanders fields the poppies blowÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩÔøΩ__.
