Woman's bust in tapestry

This linen and wool tapestry is expertly executed. Weibel give a wonderful description of how the woman's head is depicted in this tapestry. The subject is a woman with her head turned slightly to the right shoulder. It is woven in very fine wool, which allowed the weaver to provide excellent detail in the tapestry.

Roses in tapestry

This tapestry has an all over pattern of quatrefoil roses. The roses are on a green background and are staggered. The petals are shaded fron wite and pint to dar red from the center out.

Horseman tapestry

It is a shame Weibel does not give this piece more attention, the description here is not nearly as robust as most in this book.It is noted there are identical tapestries in the Victoria & Albert Collection and in Dalton, Byzantine Art.The tapestry measures 3.75" square and depictes a horsemean at the center of a scene with fruits and water birds catching fish. The ground is said to be a pale buish green and the desing executed in red and white.
