This medieval tapestry "John VIII Palaiologos" or Palaeologus, who was the Byzantine Emperor from 1425 – 1447 in Constantinople. This work is based on the artwork of Italian Renaissance painter Benozzo Gozzoli (1421–1497). Benozzo Gozzoli was an Italian Renaissance painter from Florence and his works have a hallmark of vibrancy and detail. Palaeologus is seen here in his intricate royal attire of deep forest green, with his courtiers assisting him in his ride across the countryside, themselves dressed in characteristic tunics and bright red and blue leggings. The artistry and detail in this tapestry is outstanding. The forest is seen including the grasses and rocks in the foreground and the lush hills and red flame trees in the background. This medieval wall tapestry "John VIII Palaiologos" is backed with a lining and has a tunnel for easy hanging.
