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.
