This printed tapestry depicts scenes from the ancient Greek story of the Trojan war (please see my other textiles for the other 2 in the collection). The lovely script writing at the bottom , in Latin, reads. A warlike one, the helmet of a thousand and federate so that Bectorem they take revenge. These favors an orderly Radiance. This wonderful textile would look amazing used as a wall hanging. The ground fabric is a very heavy weight , hand woven linen and cotton fabric.

This panel weighs nearly 5 pounds. Very heavy weight, thick and heavy. The printing is all hand blocked, the colors have faded wonderfully. The patina of this textile is FABULOUS. It's developed that wonderful warm aged tone that only time can offer!
