Moore was commissioned to design textiles by Zika Ascher, a Czech textile manufacturer, who had fled Germany before the war.

These panels were originally priced at 70 guineas but it seems that the artist abandoned plans for further panels due to a lack of interest.

Rarely seen on the market, the 5ft 2in x 3ft 11in (1.06 x 1.02m) example at Folkestone is estimated at £3000-5000.
