Spirit of the Dead Watching (Manao Tupapau), Paul Gaugin, Rectangular Pillow

Regular price $29.00 Sale

This 20 x 12 inch pillow is made from fabric custom-printed with Paul Gaugin's Spirit of the Dead Watching (Manao Tupapau), from his series, Fragrance (Noa Noa). The original is a 1893-94 woodcut on China paper.

To make the pillow, the design is printed onto special paper, and then transferred using heat and pressure to become part of the fabric. This sublimation process creates a soft, breathable, vibrantly colored material.

The fabric is pre-shrunk polyester — soft and durable, with a moisture-resistant coating. The pillowcase is machine washable, with a concealed zipper. The resilient polyester filling insert retains its shape, and can be washed by hand.
