Tapestry Description

La Manta – two figures

La Manta – two figures is a detail from La Manta tapestry, originally a series of frescoes, also called the Nine Worthies tapestries. It is from an early medieval fresco of about 1420 which shows the Nine Worthies in the baronial hall of the Castello della Manta, Saluzo, Italy. These were three good Christians, three good pagans and three good Jews. On the left is Godfrey of Bouillon (designated as one of the good Christians) who led the First Crusade and was proclaimed King of Jerusalem in 1100.

The La Manta tapestries are woven in France in a fine acrylic/viscose blend with golden thread detailing. They are lined, with a rod pocket for easy hanging.  There are also tapestries from the frescoes showing two, four and six figures..
