Dimensions: 41 x 35 cm
Drawing inspiration from the Douce Apocalypse and the Trinity Apocalypse, The Red Dragon Lurks in Front of the Woman Clothed with the Sun depicts the 7-headed dragon’s arrival in the story of the Woman of Revelations 12. Both Anglo-Norman manuscripts overlook this moment of the story providing an opening for artistic interpretation. While utilizing traditional embroidery techniques, the embroidered panel blends the Anglo-Norman aesthetic influences while providing visual commentary through the gaze of a modern female artist.
