    Now £4.99 Members' price * Was £9.99


    A cotton tote bag inspired by an object in the Egypt: faith after the Pharaohs exhibition.

    The design is taken from details of a pair of rare Coptic textile dating from the 6th- 7th centuries AD. Coptic textiles were bright, highly decorated works of art. These curtains exemplify the re-use of classical themes in a Christian context throughout Late Antiquity.

    Each curtain is woven with decorative birds, baskets and floral motifs. Along the top there is an elaborate border containing figures of Erotes, winged gods associated with love in Greek mythology, holding floral garlands. Also included on the curtains are a pair of classical Nike figures holding a Christian Greek cross with an inscription.
