Is there no transparent netting available? I felt the dyed netting obscured the detail slightly.
Before and after comparison photos, please!
DEAR BRITISH MUSEUM: Please please please pretty please with a cherry on top, can you guys have 1 of these made today using historical methods, and put out a video?? it would be a wonderful reference piece, and a pretty cool project for some historical fabrics expert to make.
Fabric from the 12th CENTURY?? I tried to preserve my Star Wars shirt from the seventies. No dice.
Is this stolen
Ana looks as bored as I feel. Sorry.
wow. yet more history preserved. the weaving and embroidery is just spectacular.
I embroidered a Sassainian Senmurv once. It was in a roundel. I'm a decorative arts nerd…
Many thanks – fascinating to see you at work and to hear how passionate you all are about your work.
I wonder if they will go on to try to reproduce the textile to show how it would look when it was new.
I like how the context and history was given
Thank you all for saving history 🎈
Interestingly, a king (a layman, though annointed and chosen for his office "by God's grace") would be entombed wearing not a crown but a mitre, not secular at all, but usually a headgear designating higher church prelates.
