Description

This piece shows an image of a faded king and queen playing chess in a garden, as hawkers go by with birds on their wrists (Wilde 118). Again, this attic piece reinforces a Renaissance or Gothic image in Dorian's apartment.
----
This image is a loose interpretation of a tapestry like Dorian's. The Met describes the late 16th-century wool and silk tapestry as depicting hunters in a landscape. The tapestry is done " In a style referred to by Flemish weavers at the time as 'English fashion,' it was intended to hang between the cornice and the dado of a wood-paneled room." (Anonymous|Hunters in a Landscape| British, probably london|The Met)
