Wool warp, wool weft and silk
Six hunters on horseback lead this elephant hunt. They are armed with either a stake or a sword. Two animals are being chased: one in the upper part, the other in the lower part of the composition is trying unsuccessfully to hide in bushes that are far too small.
Woven in wool and silk, the tapestry has kept its border decorated with fruit, flowers and birds. It is reduced in height and width and has some reweaving, particularly in the back of the horse in the foreground.
