The Apocalypse Tapestry of Angers, France
Perhaps the largest medieval tapestry hangs in a custom-built gallery in the Castle of Angers. Designed by a book illustrator from Bruges and woven in Paris, this powerful weaving recalls the strange scenes envisioned by John of Patmos that eventually found their way in to Bible of Western Christians – and into the public consciousness of all those who view their present world as going to the devil until it will be rescued through Divine power. The details of which, are left to the reader, the internet, the right and left wing talk shows, etc.
