Medieval Tapestries Summation
Medieval tapestries depict the medieval period in a very artistic and
graceful manner. The main highlight of these tapestries lies in their
simplicity which brings out an essence of beauty and unique artistic
presentation. The medieval tapestries are based on medieval art which
mainly emerged from the blending of Roman art and German art that
occurred during the turmoil of the middle Ages. The art in these
tapestries therefore contains numerous recurring themes seen in the
works of the middle Ages which include mythical beasts, sense and
perception, glory and the celebration of great dynasties. Tapestries
portray this medieval art with a sense of depth and texture and this is
what makes them so popular even with home décor enthusiasts.
