Sabina Savage

"Cave Canem" Wool/Silk Scarf

$480.00

Each Sabina Savage scarf is a collectible, heritage piece — a wearable work of art.

Intricate designs tell an extensively researched and imaginative story. Each illustration is hand-drawn by Sabina—sometimes taking up to six weeks for a single design. The matte, opaque texture of the medium-weight, beautifully soft wool and silk blend fabric gives the prints an antique finish. Hand-finished with a delicate fringe, each piece is instantly recognizable.

From The Treasures of Pompeii collection (Fall 2020): As Mount Vesuvius begins to erupt, Pompeiians flee in droves, leaving their homes, animals and possessions behind. "In the town centre, the first scorching ash begins to settle on an old greyhound’s back. He is chained to the doorway of his master’s villa, a large ornate padlock affixing him to the wall and the mosaic tiles beneath his feet read 'Cave Canem' (Beware of the Dog). As he begins to despair, a great heron flies from the waterside. In her beak she holds a glistening metal key, which she deftly fits into the lock, releasing the greyhound. To show gratitude to his avian friends, he bounds into the house and fetches the master’s helpless caged birds before setting off to the shoreline to make their escape."
