Heraldic Lion 
In this Heraldic Lion French wall tapestry based on the original tapestry by William Morris (1836-1896) from 1890. Here we see a scene that represents the Quest for the Unicorn by King Arthur and his knights of the round table. Its companion piece is "Heraldic Unicorn". The lion is shown here to represent the most courageous of all knights and there is an array of shields decorating the forest to represent the coat of arms or heraldry of the various knights, and above the scroll reads "Of those knights that thus departed these are the chiefest, sir Gawain of Orkney, Sir Lancelot, Sir Hector DeMarys, Sir Bors, Sir Percival, Sir Galahad." Morris was a proponent of beauty and unique art through a period of British or English history which represented industrialism. His works makes use of a rich use of texture, pattern and color to produce captivating pieces often based on mythical works and historical literature.

Ordered a tapestry to very short timescales just before Christmas... not expecting to receive before the New Year. Extremely surprised when it arrived just before Christmas during all the really snowy weather

...& even more surprised at the high quality of the tapestry. I am now about to place an order for another tapestry for my daughter's 18th birthday.

Highly recommended!
