'Baobab Cat' Orange Twill Silk 90cm Scarf
Hermes 'Baobab Cat' scarf. This lovely and colourful scarf features a leopard sitting in the the heart of a baobab ﬂower. For the Zulu kings, this majestic big cat incarnated their noble status, while the baobab represented power and grace. The ﬂowers of this colossal tree only open at dusk, just when the leopard ventures out in search of its prey. The play on composition blends the animal and the plant into a single being, haloed by a crown of white-speckled feathers. The Ardmore artists’ collective works to promote the style and traditional imagery of the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa, where it was founded by Fée Halsted in 1985. Signed by artist. Hand rolled hem. Excellent vintage condition. Made in France.
