Worldwide Tapestries ::  Medieval wall hangings ::  Maximilien


Detailed Image
This exquisite medieval tapestry "Maximilien" shows the hunting scene based on the Hunt of Maximilien, which was originally woven in the 16th century. The designs were based on the illustrations of Bernard van Orley. This tapestry shows the scene from March, as each of the original 12 tapestries were based on a month of the year. Situated in the forest of Soignes, just outside Brussels, this scene shows the king in red garments and stockings, on horseback in the forest with the city in the background. There is an exquisite detail in the verdure or the foliage of the scene, as well as the horse's musculature, as well as the rest of the elements of nature. These are the beginnings of the emergence of verdure tapestry art from the medieval era, transforming the stylized detail of medieval art, to that of the Renaissance. This exquisite medieval tapestry "Maximilien" is backed with lining and tunnel for easy hanging. Note: Tapestry accessories, where pictured, are not included in the price.

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!
