Instead of hanging on plain white walls in old-aged museums, art should be adopted and displayed by art lovers as a part of their characteristics. 

Today, we will be introducing three famous paintings by William Morris. Perhaps some of you are already familiar with them.

A famous design created by William Morris in 1883. The design depicts a bird, most commonly thought to be a thrush, swooping down to steal strawberries from a vine. The design is characterized by its intricate, swirling patterns and rich colors, it became one of Morris's most popular and enduring works, and it remains a beloved symbol of the Arts and Crafts movement.

It is also known as "Brimham Rocks with Snakeshead" as it depicts a specific location in Yorkshire, England called Brimham Rocks. In "Snakeshead", Morris portrays a single stem of the Fritillaria meleagris plant, commonly known as snakeshead due to its distinct markings.
