Tapestry Description

The Knight of Siena tapestry

Italian fresco

The Knight of Siena tapestry wall-hanging is from a 14th century Italian fresco. The full 31 foot long fresco is the Pallazo Publico in Siena. It shows Guidoriccio da Fogliano, commander of the Sienese army, at the seige of Montemassi. The fresco was possibly painted in 1330, two years after the seige whose date is shown in the lower centre of the border.

Today this scene is an Italian wall tapestry woven in 53% viscose and 41% cotton. It is fully lined, with a rod pocket – we supply hanging information with each order.
