A magical Early Tapestry c.1620.
Depicting a Royal Gathering in an expansive garden and landscape.
The garden is rich with flora and fauna: from the foreground of leaves, fronds and flowers to the background of distant mountains and palms viewed through the fig trees. The seated and arriving crowned figures are animated and engaged.
The natural dyed wool tapestry is still vibrant and distinctive after 400 years!
The edges are bordered in bands of blue and ochre.
