One of the scenics in the series of tapestries known as “The Jagaloon Tapestries”, “Timberland” was commissioned along with the others by the King of Poland and was woven in Flanders. Like the others in the set, “Timberland” is a portiere, which is a truncation of rideau de porte, which means door curtain in French. These were used as doors in castles and chateaus to stave off cold winter drafts. Over time, they evolved into elaborate works of art. In “Timberland”, we see a stand of tall trees with ivy wrapping lazily around them. The depth of the forest can be seen through these trees, as other trees reveal themselves in the increasingly dark background. It is an incredible work, worthy of display in a prominent place in your home. This tapestry is lined and has a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are purchased separately.
