Lion hunt
Ateliers de la Marche
About 1600
H. 215 x 250 cm
Wool warp, wool weft and silk
The scene is animated by four hunters on horseback and two hunters on foot. The horsemen point their swords at two lions, while the hunters on foot try to blind and immobilise a third lion with a kind of hood; do they want to capture it alive
A similar tapestry is reproduced in the book Les Tapisseries d'Aubusson et Felletin, p.31 and two other very similar tapestries in the catalogue Vénerie et volerie en tapisserie, p.69 and 73
Woven in wool and silk, the panel shows old restorations and reweavings, but the composition seems almost complete.
