of you may remember Dpages feature on Anne Carrington back in February of this year. At the close of our interview, Anne mentioned she had been commissioned to create a work for The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Well, after several long month of waiting… here it is in all its royal glory!
“It is a great honour to have been asked to make this historic artwork for the Queen in celebration of her diamond Jubilee. The Royal Jubilee banner will hang from the stern of the Royal Barge, the Spirit of Chartwell as it makes its journey up the River Thames from Battersea to London Bridge on this momentous occasion – The Thames Diamond Jubilee procession.” – Anne Carrington
The banner is embroidered with over half a million golden buttons and drew its original inspiration from the London Pearly Kings and Queens who have been embellishing their magnificent suits with pearl buttons since the mid 19th century. Prints of the Royal Banner and the Pearly Queen of Jubilee Gardens will be available in limited edition prints through www.anncarrington.co.uk.
