$19,995

About

An antique 18th century Flemish mythological tapestry, size 11'0 H x 12'6 W. This period European tapestry depicts the Greek God Apollo, who is the deity of the arts, poetry, crops, and herds, and also presided over religious and civil law. Apollo is seated with a warrior's helmet at center, counselling a group of people, and helping to purify them. His lyre is being played by a woman at right. His fellow deity, Hermes, a protector of animals, and also a messenger of the Gods, appears in the upper right corner of the tapestry, riding in his chariot and observing Apollo's conduct below. This tapestry is handwoven, and composed of wool, with silk inlay. Condition is good, but with some areas of reduction, prior restoration, and damage. A great choice for a home, an office space, a theatre hall, a governmental building, or even a house of worship! Hanging: The tapestry comes ready for hanging, with linen backing and a strip of hook and loop tape at the top end, which can be connected to the opposite side of the supplied hook and loop tape, which could be tacked to your wall. For those who prefer the use of a tapestry rod, we can add the appropriate size loops to accommodate your needs.
