This medieval tapestry "Cavalier" shows three knights on horses the work of Victor Vasnetsov (1848-1926) called The Three Bogatyrs from 1898. Vasnetsov was a Russian artist who's works focused on mythological and historical works. The term Bogatyr refers to the ancient Turk word for hero or valiant warrior, such as the medieval warriors of Kievan Rus and the Novgorodian Republic. One of Rus' epic poems called Bylinas told of stories about the bogatyrs of the court of Vladimir I or Kiev from 958-1015. The three bogatyrs Dobrynya Nikitich, Ilya Muromets and Alyosha Popovich from these tales are seen here in this tapestry. Brave and valiant, these knights, akin to the Western knight errant or wandering knight, would travel and have adventures that build their character and prove their courage. This tapestry is full of detail and beauty and has an atmospheric light to the scene. This medieval wall tapestry "Cavalier" is backed with a lining and has a tunnel for easy hanging.
