    Extra Large Hand Woven Wall Tapestry circa. 1950-1970. Measures 18.5 feet by 6 feet. It was commisioned by Charles Mapes owner of The Money Tree Casino in Reno, Nevada for $70,000 and was displayed in The Polyester Palace, a nightclub in the Casino. I am desperate to know who the artist is. It appears the last four letters of the signature are ison. I rescued it from the closed casino in 2004.
