This medieval Vendanges tapestry is taken from the original called Les Vendanges (The Grape Harvest). Woven in the late 15th century it was designed to celebrate the annual wine harvest and we see the peasants gathering the grapes for use in wine making. Around the tapestry we also see the distinctive Mille Fleurs decoration typical of Medieval tapestries. During the Middle Ages tapestries were commissioned by the wealthy and tended to reflect dramatic themes and religious symbolism. More rarely work was commissioned to depict everyday scenes, like the piece above, offering a rare glimpse into life during medieval times. The original of this tapestry can be found in the wonderful Musee National du Moyen Age in Paris.
