The Neptune's Riches Scarf, a mosaic-inspired design, features Mandarin ducks diving for treasure as they help to untangle the jewel-adorned sea creatures below. The design is surrounded by a cornucopia of shells and fruit.
This collection references the beautiful artworks and artifacts uncovered during the excavation of the Italian city of Pompeii. Mount Vesuvius erupted in AD 79, covering the city in volcanic ash and preserving a unique snapshot of Roman life. From the intricate stone mosaics and hand-painted frescoes to the ancient molded coins and figurative jewelry, the beauty and symbolism of the Roman arts are astounding. The exquisite Roman Lod Mosaic uncovered in Israel is also referenced in this collection, alongside the architecture and artworks of ancient Rome and the written accounts of Pliny the Younger.
Every Sabina Savage design is hand illustrated, telling the story of the collection through the composition and details. The scarves are drawn in full, and the four corners of each scarf offer different elements, ensuring the wearer will display a unique feature however the scarf is folded.
