From a tapestry originally woven at the end of the fifteenth century at the workshop of Peter Van Oelst in Brussels. Between 1418 and 1446 about five hundred names of tapestry weavers were inscribed in the registry of wool-workers in Brussels. Van Oelst was a master-weaver in Brussels who attracted commissions from such personages as Marguerite of Austria, the Emperor Maximilian and Philip of Spain, and whose skill and reputation were strong factors in the early prosperity of Brussels as a tapestry-weaving centre. This tapestry is now at the Muse des Arts-Dcoratifs (Museum of Decorative Arts) in Paris.

This beautiful tapestry is Silkscreened (also known as serigraphed) onto an irregularly woven fabric made from wool, cotton or linen. Considerable labour is required with this process including hand-painting to finish the details. Silk screen tapestries appear antiqued and aged giving them the look and feel of tapestries that hang in museums today. This tapestry is fully lined incorporating a sleeve along the top for hanging with a Hines hanging rod. Alternatively, this tapestry can be hung with a wooden batten which is a concealed method of hanging.
