The Drake, an Art Deco style building in the Rittenhouse neighborhood of Philadelphia.

See full description & specifications

The Drake is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 

It was built in 1928-29 and the 375 foot tall structure dominates the Spruce Street area between 15th and 16th.  It is set apart from other local buildings by the Spanish Baroque terra cotta ornamentation on themes surrounding Sir Francis Drake.  These are not seen from this view but include dophins, shells, sailing vessels and globes.  It is also topped by a terra cotta dome.

Hand dyed cotton is fused and stitched to the surface, detailing is added with Micron pen, and spiral quilting adds energy and vibrancy to the work.  It is mounted on black painted stretched canvas and is ready to hang.
