Tapestry Description

Wawel Castle tapestry

This Wawel Castle tapestry is one of a large series woven to hang in the royal Wawel Castle in Krakow, Poland. They are also called the Jagaloon tapestries or the Jagiellonian tapestries, named after the Jagiellonian royal dynasty. There were over 360 tapestries originally, including many verdure tapestries, decorating the castle where 136 remain today. This tapestry, called An Otter with a Fish in its Mouth was woven in Brussels in 1555 by Jan van Tieghem. Today this Belgian tapestry wall hanging is woven in 73% cotton, 19% trevira and 8% mercurise. We have several other Jagaloon tapestries available, many making excellent matching pairs or triptychs.
