The structure I have chosen to examine is from an 18th century French tapestry, produced by the Beauvais Tapestry Manufactory. I selectively studied only the structure covering the subjects of The Return from the Hunt, Escher-like in its ambiguous dimensions, and reminiscent of a circus tent. I sought to explore the wonderment and magic of the circus, first restoring glory to the tents’ appearance, and then presenting the resultant structure if one of the big tops were to take flight.
