Squirrel Nutkin has his favorite chair, where birdseed falls on his head like manna, unasked for, from heaven.
It’s perfect place for pillow-hiding where no one can see him at all, if only it weren’t for his tell-tale-tail!
He can scale the walls like spiderman,
and perch on his chair like a king on his throne.
These tapestries were commissioned by Phillip V who lived from 1683-1746,
and depict in detail the life and adventures of Don Quixote.
I included a close-up so you could see the intricate stitch detail in these remarkable tapestries.
They were woven sometime in the early 1700’s by the Madrid Tapestry Factory which was founded by King Phillip V. Goya worked for a time in this factory creating designs.
Cheers to you in honor of Don Quixote who taught us so much about the subjective nature of our perceptions~
