This month's pick is a Coptic textile woven in Egypt in the 8th century AD
It features a colorful pattern of striped bands with ducks and a pacman-like floral motif alternating. A couple of other forms also make an appearance including a rosette and a rabbit. Smaller rows of scrolling vegetation add additional layers.
