Assyrian Daisy Frame

It’s hard to find good images of borders as frames and repeating patterns that can easily be made bigger or smaller. This Assyrian Daisy frame image displays only one corner of the frame but it wouldn’t take too much effort to turn it into a rectangular or square frame image.

This image is actually part of a drawing of a carpet that was originally carved in stone. How wonderfully detailed it is! The 1886 book on art influences on embroidery unfortunately didn’t identify where the design was found. The author goes on to discuss how the lotus flower became synonymous with Egyptian art and the daisy was tied to Assyria. She further explains that the daisies were often leafless blossoms.

Since to turn our Assyrian daisy pattern into a true frame you will be working with an image editor, why not add some color and allow this design to become uniquely your own?
