This woven tapestry shows medieval knights in their armour, flags and regalia on horseback.
From one of the three lower panels of the Ghent Altarpiece the Adoration of the Mystic Lamb, this is a very large and complex 15th century early Flemish polyptych altarpiece in St Bavo's Cathedral.
Art historians generally agree that the overall structure was designed by Hubert in the early to mid 1420s, and that the panels were painted by his younger brother Jan between 1430 and 1432.
The figures, armour and landscape in the background are all painted with remarkable detail. The landscape is rich with vegetation, which is observed with an almost scientific accuracy and much of it non-European.
It is considered a masterpiece of European art and one of the world's treasures.
This wonderful tapestry is woven on a jacquard loom and is hand finished. It makes a wonderful gift for someone who is interested in medieval history.
- Hand finished tapestry
Fabrics by their nature are flexible, during storage, humidity and temperature may occasionally affect their shape and also cause creasing. To help a tapestry hang better we recommend using a dry iron on a 'Cotton' setting. Lightly iron the tapestry from the centre towards the edges [on the face]. In very extreme cases the Tapestry can be stretched by pulling the panel gently by hand, diagonally.
