Tapestry Description

The Quest Lion tapestry

Holy Grail tapestries

The Quest Lion tapestry is half of the Quest for the Holy Grail 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 of 77% wool and 20% cotton has a lining, with a rod pocket. We enclose tapestry hanging suggestions with your order. The matching Unicorn and the full tapestry scene (which shows a better quality image) are also available as separate Arts & Crafts tapestries. Please note that the larger size is non-returnable.
