The Arming and Departure of the Knights Tapestry - Medium
The Arming and Departure of the Knights Tapestry By Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris. These famed masters of the English decorative arts creatively capture the romance of the pursuit for the Holy Grail in this 1896 tapestry design. Though many dispute the specific nature of the mythological Grail, few question its magic as a shining symbol of adventure. A richly vibrant mille-fleur of golds, burgundies, greens and blues on a striking black background surrounds the figures. Handwoven in France on a jacquard loom, this exquisite masterwork accommodates optional rod and finials or hangs easily on metal hangers in the lining. Shown with NG295531 rod and finials, $49 NRS; TD1800 tassels, each $49.95 (includes two tassels attached to a single braided cord).
