Tapestry Description

The Draped Horse

The Draped Horse tapestry is from the series of eight 17th century wall tapestries, Tentures des Indes, woven at Les Gobelins in Paris. This one is a detail showing a horse at a riverbank – its matching half has a flamingo, and there is also a square tapestry combining these two halves. Today it is woven in France in a high quality 50% wool and 50% cotton weave which gives both fine detailing and full depth. This tapestry is lined, with a rod pocket for easy wall-hanging.
