A thriving forest setting is surrounded by a golden peitit point frame of feathery leaves. If one were to look carefully at the frame, they would also see the tools of the hunt such as quivers full of arrows and bows, ribbons of leather bearing stirrups, and a single cross bow near the bottom. Hounds, detailed in values of brown, scour the area for scents of a fox or stag while a clever buck watches from his hiding place at the top of the frame. At the center of the needlepoint rests a traditional hunter's horn hanging from a forest tree. This pillow is completed with a tri color tasseled trim of gold, cream and green which accentuates the colors of the hunt. This needlepoint pillow measures 19" x 19" and is filled with a down/feather combination.
