GIGLIO TOSCANO Collection. The Tuscan interpretation of the Raffaellesco pattern. The 'Raffaellesco' design traces its origins from the graceful arabesques of XVI Century painter Raphael's famous frescoes, which feature a stylized dragon. Raphael, master painter and architect of the Italian High Renaissance, reputedly first painted Raffaellesco (also known as the Dragon), pattern. Raffaellesco is a benevolent deity, bestowing good luck and fair winds to the seagoing merchants of the era.
