Cindy did a post on tapestries and I mentioned I had done some work of this nature. She requested that I post it. Tapestry is an ancient art form. If you spend some time at the Cluny Museum in Paris you will see some spectacular tapistries. The tapistry is composed of a web backing in which the design is drawn and individual stitches using coloured wool are used to imbed the picture. It is a laborious undertaking but creates a delightful picture. This is a 20″ x 45″ tapestry that I did many years ago. I purchased the unfinished piece in France. The design is not of my origin but it is of my liking. The centre oval depicts three cupids playing musical instruments and dancing around in a chaotic fashion. They are overseen by two large eagles on each side.
