• Love affair with woolen textiles

       As a little diversion from my “real job”, here I’m working on the stabilization and repair of a late medieval tapestry in the textile lab at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Click to view the whole tapestry: The Ship of Virtues (MIA 42.15, 13′ x 13′, silk and wool. Tournai, about 1528-1540). The tapestry will probably be on exhibition in 2007.
