The Old Brussels tapestry shows an elaborate scene from the Maximillian series from the medieval period. Here we see one of the twelve hunting scenes in the Maximillian series, woven in the late 16th century. Created for the Archduke Maximillian who was later to become Emperor. The scene is filled with elaborate detail and shows life in the medieval period including the royalty in the countryside on horseback, with the great village in the background. Tall trees are present in the foreground and the hills are seen extending into the distance with clouds in full formation in the sky. The emblem of the ram in the top of the work symbolizes the sign of Aries, to represent the month of March, or the season of early spring. The Old Brussels tapestry is backed with lining and tunnel for easy hanging.
