Add a touch of dark elegance to any space with this vintage linen that has been revamped and transformed into an enchanting piece of functional artwork. A unique handmade piece, it can be used for altars and tarot spreads, dressers and vanities, or hung on the wall.
This special altar cloth has been dyed and screenprinted by hand with an original illustration of the Death's Head Hawkmoth. A moth sits still in the midnight air, a skull emblazoned on its back acts as a warning to enemies of their certain death. The Death’s Head Hawkmoth is a unique type of moth that has a skull-like pattern on its back, which causes many people to have a superstitious fear of this particularly spooky species. Although ominous, the skull is merely a symbol of life and death and the full cycle of being born again. Among the moth's many gifts are its power of complete transformation from caterpillar to moth and its ability to find light in the darkness. Moths have thus become symbols of optimism and hope. They teach us how to transform ourselves and move into our own personal light by expelling negative energies and finding positive power and happiness.
Printed with silver ink and silver leaf accents on dyed black cloth with embroidery and battenburg lace trim.
