King Harold Small, jacquard woven French impressionist wall tapestry décor depicts events leading up to the Battle of Hastings (1066) when Duke William of Normandy was victorious over King Harold of Saxony, England. This is an extract of the queen Mathilde's tapestry. The original some 230 feet long, is in the Bayeux museum in Normandy. It describes how England was conquered by Normans. Also known as L'Embarquement. Here, the Latin inscription ECCLESIA, HIC HAROLD MARE NAVIGAVIT ET VELIS says that Harold prepares for his trip. He enjoys his last meal before taking the open sea in direction of Normandy. A lovely way to bring out the beauty of your surroundings.
