Hearing wall tapestry
The Hearing wall tapestry is one of the famous six tapestries in the The Lady with the Unicorn medieval tapestries series. Woven in the early 1500's they show the arms of Jean le Viste. Each represents one of the senses except for the final A Mon Seul Desir. They were lost until 1844 when the novelist Georges Sands discovered them in Boussac suffering from damage from rats and damp walls. The Cluny Museum in Paris purchased these 12' high masterpieces in 1853, later restoring them. They are now amongst the national treasures of France displayed in their own circular room at the museum.
This version is a new French tapestry and it is lined, with a rod pocket for easy hanging. We supply tapestry hanging information with every order.
