This beautiful and colorful carpet is based on an original painting by Miró conceived in 1935. The ground colour is yellow and arranged on it are four different motifs in blue, red white and black. This special piece was issued in a small edition, which will fit in the surrounding while staying, however, an extraordinary and fascinating eyecatcher.  Handknotted with woolpile on a cotton foundation it can equally be used as carpet or as tapestry.
