This Belgian chenille tapestry features a two-handled vessel used to transport wine or olive oil, the amphora has been in use by the Greeks and the Romans for centuries. Meaning, "carry on both sides", amphoras came in two shapes: pointed bottom and flat bottomed. The pointed bottoms allowed the amphoras to be set into the sand while the flat versions were meant for use in the home. Amphora tapestry depicts the latter. It is accented on each side by Grecian pedestals, which support a lovely arch above. The arch has a wonderful vine wreath hanging from it. The amphora, or urn, is very detailed, right down to the ornate handles that give the piece its name.
