"Cave Canem from the House of the Tragic Poet", was a mosaic placed on the left of the doorway as one entered the home. The words Cave Canem (beware of the dog) was a message for the arriving visitor. Ancient mosaics were an invaluable record of the culture at the time, and provided an invaluable insight into the ancient Roman world. Peggy has designed this pillow based on the original mosaics that she saw while walking through ancient Rome and Pompeii. An ancient mosaic reinterpreted for todays modern living space.

About Needlepaint Handmade pillows

The best needlepoint pillows are the ones we hand stitch from 100% Waverly Wool or DMC cotton. You can choose from over 15 colors of velvet backing, and can opt to add piping around the edge of your needlepoint pillow. If you like, we can customize the needlepoint pillow with a name or change a design to use the colors that you desire.

Every 12 x 12 inch and larger needlepoint pillow comes complete with a zipper in the back to remove the pillow form that it comes with. Our smaller needlepoint pillows are stuffed to size and sealed without the option to remove the stuffing.

Our needlepoint pillows are made by hand, stitch by stitch, so they take 8 – 12 weeks to finish.
