About

A French Aubusson mythological tapestry from the late 17th century. This tapestry describes the myth of Pan and Syrinx after Ovide’s Metamorphoses. The God Pan pursues the nymph of the Woods Syrinx. Keeping her Virtue, she runs until she reaches a river and begs her sisters of the river to transform her in order to escape Pan. As the god is about to catch her, Syrinx turns into reeds. When Pan discovers that he is only holding reeds instead of the beautiful nymph, he cuts a few reeds and glued them together with beeswax, making the first Pan flute to console himself. This grotesque moment when the god misses his target was very fashionable and common in France at that time, as it is a moralizing theme about the frustration caused by the unfulfilled desire. Wool with silk inlay. Excellent condition. Measures: 7’2” H x 6’9” W. 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.
