no 13: seahorses
Already a long time I
knew there exist a book with Assisi patterns from an Italian named Chiari
Cernetti Battistelli, edited in 1925. At last I found a copy of this
book at an antiquarian in Italy.
The marvelous design
below is from that book. In the book, the author says that the designs
comes from much earlier sources. There are at least two other traditional
designs with seahorses, but they are much smaller. One you can find under
Assisi, designs, small.
