Secret Garden Canvas Wall Scroll Tapestry by artist Anne Stokes
Beautiful, and much easier to hang than a painting
I love the feeling of peace that this tapestry lends to my bedroom. Magickal, yet gentle. And it shows dragons in a different light- they are usually portrayed as fierce, but this one is gentle enough to be loved by a maiden.
As far as the quality of the tapestry goes, it is superior to most I have seen. It feels like smooth canvas with a glossy, flexible, plastic coating on the front. The coating makes the surface very easy to dust or wipe clean, and does not hold onto dust the way that plain cotton might. The scroll is much easier to hang than even a regular painting because it is light and requires only a nail. Since it is so light, though, I wouldn't recommend hanging it anyplace windy, because it will blow around.
This is my second wall scroll purchase from Design Toscano. The edges of the scrolls curled up a tiny bit at the sides after hanging for about a week, and this gives them a little bit more of a fancy look. I've had the first one for a few months, and haven't any problems with fading; but I don't have either one of them in direct sunlight, either.
Overall, I think these tapestries are well-made, durable, and beautiful. They offer a nice-sized artwork for such a small price.
