Melchior II

Detailed Image
Melchior II 
Superb in composition and color, this medieval tapestry "Melchior II" shows a detail from a portrait of John VIII Palaiologos, who was the Byzantine Emperor from 1425 1447 in Constantinople. From the artwork of Italian Renaissance painter Benozzo Gozzoli (1421 1497), this is the most famous portrait of the King who was depicted by the famous Renaissance artists on his visit to Italy. The related work "Melchior I" shows the entire scene. Here we see the sumptuous details that makes this scene almost illuminates from the background, especially with the white horse and the sand he is walking on, as the King and his collection of young noblemen, of which we see one in this section, accompanies him. In the background is the castle and the surrounding gardens and forests. There is a prominent bush grove in the midground as well. Dressed in full regalia, this party of royalty epitomized royal life in medieval times. This medieval wall art tapestry "Melchior I" is backed with a lining 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!
