Medieval Tapestries


After an initial good experience with painting a tapestry, and finding a copy of the Codex Manesse, I decided to make one small (approx 2' x 3') tapestry a month (for a year).  All of these tapestries are based on the Codex Manesse: Die Miniaturen der Grossen Heidelberger Liederhandschrift.  All the images for the Codex Mannesse can now be found on-line. All the images in the page below are thumbnails, so click them to see a larger picture.    The project didn't quite last a year because I ran out of wall space in my pavilion on which to hang them.
