Summary

A resin cast of a dog showing only the head, part of the back and the tail, appears to be 'immersed in' the carpet. It seems likely that 'Shellburst Anthracite' relates to the commercial description of the pattern and colour of the carpet. The carpet is mass-produced rather than a craft object.
