The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb Belgian wall tapestry is based on the work of Jan and Hugh van Eyck the Mystic Lamb from the 15th century. The original was a large polyptych panel painting created in 12 panels, and was completed between 1430 and 1432. The original was commissioned by politician Jodocus Vijd. In the Adoration of the Mystic Lamb we see the central lamb surrounded by 14 angels. The lamb refers to the sacrifice of Christ. A holy dove above the lamb is surrounded by golden haloes. The fountain of life can be seen in the foreground and the people surrounding are martyrs, writers, Jewish prophets, and saints, all in a fantastic and lush forest clearing with castles in the horizon. This work is superb in its composition, balance and use of color and details. This Adoration of the Mystic Lamb tapestry is backed with a lining and a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rods and tassels, where pictured, are not included in the price.
