Notes

This linen and wool tapestry is expertly executed. Weibel give a wonderful description of how the woman's head is depicted in this tapestry. The subject is a woman with her head turned slightly to the right shoulder. It is woven in very fine wool, which allowed the weaver to provide excellent detail in the tapestry.
