Dragon Decorative Pillow


Not your grandmother’s throw pillow—unless your grandmother is completely epic. This gorgeous dragon illustration is featured in an antiquarian book in the Museum’s collection.

Our Research Library is home to encyclopedic works of the 1600-1700s, some of which feature illustrations of fantastical creatures, unicorns, and dragons alongside common animals like horses, oxen, snakes, and birds. Earlier writings suggested the existence of these fanciful animals, and those mistaken ideas were simply replicated in these encyclopedic works.

This 14” x 14” polyester pillow is a real statement piece. The cover has a concealed zipper, and the polyester pillow insert is included.
