Restoration and new presentation

The Winged Stags tapestry has recently been cleaned and restored. This operation revealed previously rewoven sections of the work, notably on the left side. The enclosure was most probably initially positioned in the centre of the composition, and the left border was reworked after the disappearance of a section of the tapestry. Likewise, the bottom edge, which cuts one of the lions’ paws, must have been recut.
The tapestry has now been returned to the Deville Room in the Museum of Antiquities, which was renovated to showcase this and other exceptional works from the late Middle Ages.
