Peabody Essex Museum is host to one of the finest examples of Gothic tapestry in existence now through the end of 2012! Come see this set of four massive, 36 foot-long tapestries that depict the North African military campaigns of Portugal's King Alphonse V during the crusades in the 15th Century. Experience medieval life through this tapestry with depictions of knights, ships, fortresses, weaponry, armour, attire and other details of the period. The four tapestries were recently restored to their finest condition in centuries, and are presented at PEM as an immersive, two-gallery experience before returning to Spain.
Now through December 31, 2012
