Tapestry Description

Apocalypse Tapestry Storm

Angers wall tapestries

The Apocalypse Tapestry Storm shows one of four details from the Apocalypse Tapestry which make excellent groups or matching pairs of wall-hangings. This famous medieval tapestry was woven in the late 14th century for Louis I in 90 scenes, presenting the story of the Apocalyse from the Book of Revelation. The story was divided into six parts, each 78 feet long and 20 feet high. During the French Revolution the tapestries were cut up but portions of 71 of the 90 scenes were found in 1848 and were restored. These remaining 353 feet are the longest and oldest surviving medieval tapestries and are now displayed in a stunning gallery at the Chateau d’Angers in the Loire Valley.

Today we have several sections of these Angers wall tapestries available, woven in France by Jules Pansu in 95% cotton. All are lined, with a rod pocket. We enclose instructions about how to hang a tapestry with your order. Interestingly, these 14th century tapestries have quite a contemporary appearance.
