Tapestry Description

Quest for the Holy Grail – Disc by Rights Owner

Lion and unicorn tapestries

The Quest for the Holy Grail wall tapestry is also known as the Verdure with Deer and Shields tapestry in the Quest for the Holy Grail tapestries series. These were designed by Sir Edward Burne-Jones, with work by William Morris, and then adapted by John Henry Dearle. Woven by Morris & Co, it is now at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. The search by the 24 knights is idealised by the lion (courage) and the unicorn (purity).

The excellent French weave from Jules Pansu is of 77% wool and 20% cotton has a lining, with a rod pocket for easy wall-hanging. We enclose tapestry hanging suggestions with your order. The Lion and the Unicorn tapestries are also available separately, ie two halves. Please note that the largest size is non-returnable.
