I am jumping with joy- the commission I came to do is nearing the end, I had a meeting this morning to finalize everything and that means I can book my flight back to Mali! I will go back on the 23rd of October, well in time for the season's first arrival of The Beast. (The Full Hotel).
What you see above is the exact copy of a carpet pattern which has been painted on canvas, and which will go into Apsley House in London's Hyde Park Corner. It is a very grand building, given to the Duke of Wellington when he trounced Napoleon at Waterloo. The floorcloth will go into the appropriately named Waterloo Room.
