La Manta’s Fresco

Detailed Image
La Manta’s Fresco 
This tapestry is taken from a fresco painted by an artist known only as “Master of La Manta” depicting Godfrey of Bouillon and other celebrated characters taken from the Middle Ages. In 1096, when the Pope issued his degree to begin the first Crusade, it was Godfrey of Bouillon who stepped forward to lead the French knights to seize Jerusalem. After a conquering the city, Godfrey was offered the title King of Jerusalem, but he turned it down. Whether it was piety or the desire to avoid a conflict with his king, Godfrey instead chose the title Defender of the Holy Sepulchre, for he saw himself as a mere custodian of the holy city. This is an exquisitely detailed tapestry, showing the characters amongst lush green foliage, each with their heraldic shields. The original fresco can still be seen at Manta Castle in Northern Italy. This tapestry is lined and has a tunnel for easy hanging.

After only 2 weeks, my beautiful tapestry arrived! It is perfect, I just love it, and have had so many favourable comments from family and friends.

I am hooked, ...and currently am awaiting delivery of my 2nd order."


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!
