The Peacock's Garden Wall Tapestry: Grand
So, so sad....
I have waited a long time to get this tapestry as I saw it online years ago and fell in love with it. I just now have the room to hang it and I was delighted waiting for it to arrive. You can't imagine my disappointment when I opened up the box to find something that doesn't even vaguely resemble the picture on the screen. The picture shows a vibrant scene with bright turquoise and blues, sweet lavender flowers and lush green foliage. Nothing of the kind in real life. The real thing is extremely dull, with an overall brownish and yellow appearance, cheap looking. I don't know if this was an attempt at making the original design more "contemporary" by toning it down and making it duller, or cutting production costs by eliminating quality fibers, but whatever it is, it's downright ugly and an instant heartbreak. I will very reluctantly roll it up again and send it back, but I'm angry at having to pay return shipping for something I so dearly wanted to keep!

Pictures don't do justice
I have had this mounted at the top of a 2 story living room for quite awhile and everyone comments on it when they visit the first time. The colors are stunning and have held up over time even though it gets some sun during the day. I was worried that the sunshine might fade the colors but it has not. My only problem is that one side of the bracket is starting to look a bit loose but that's my fault. I just need to get up and reattach it.
You will not be disappointed. It very large and impressive when hung in a place it can be viewed properly.
