Tapestry Description

Apocalyse Tapestry – The New Jerusalem

Apocalyse Tapestry – The New Jerusalem is one of the best known scenes woven by Nicolas Bataille in the late 14th century of the Apocalyse from the Book of Revelation of St John the Divine. The story was divided into six parts, each 78 feet long and 20 feet high, woven in wool and silk. During the French Revolution the tapestries were cut up and dispersed. Portions of 71 of the 90 scenes were found in 1848 and restored. These remaining 353 feet are the oldest and largest surviving medieval tapestries and are now displayed in a stunning exhibit at the Chateau d’Angers.

Today Apocalyse Tapestry – The New Jerusalem is woven in France in 95% cotton and lined, with a rod pocket for easy hanging. (It has a dark blue background.)
