In Game of Skittles tapestry we see the traditional game in Britain in a forest verdure scene. Here we villagers playing the bowling game in a clearing in the forest in their traditional garments with an abundance of foliage of the trees and flowers to create a gorgeous work. The game of skittles is thought to have originated from the German game of Kugelen from the 4th century. In the distance are hills and a house. A leaf motif border completes the work. There is a fine balance of activity in this scene which shows the delights and simplicity of life in the countryside in this era. This Game of Skittles 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.
