This tapestry 'Godspeed' is based on a famous painting by British Pre-Raphaelite painter, Edmund Blair Leighton. His works are based in the medieval times where chivalry and knighthood and service to the king are noble acts to be rewarded, and pays homage to the Merlin and Arthurian legends from the era of neighbouring kingdoms ruled by separate kings. In this piece, a knight is given a blessing and farewell by the Lady of the court as he heads toward battle. The detailing is intricate and almost has a photographic quality as Leighton highlights the details of life in the Medieval times. This is noted especially in the fabrics of the Lady and knight, and the stonework of the castle, including the gargoyle figures on the stairs and above the door. This is a tapestry which evokes the feeling of life in medieval times in all its detail and romanticism. This tapestry 'Godspeed' is lined and has a tunnel for ease of hanging. Note: tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are purchased separately.
