Artemisia is shown at the front. It is a symbol of her bravery, nobility and intelligence as a commander of her people. This striking tapestry brings history into your home in a stunning palette of color and outstanding detail. Les Herauts tapestry is lined and comes with a tunnel for easy hanging.
