This silk and satin scarf is inspired by Gustav Klimt's mosaic "The Tree of Life" (1909).
Gustav Klimt (1862-1918), founder of the Viennese Secession, realized the project of a mosaic frieze as a decoration for a dining room of the Stoclet palace in Brussels. Its contents may be interpreted in many ways. However, the spiral ornaments seems to evoke the tree of life or, according to Christian inconography, the tree of knowledge of the Garden of Eden.
