Heavenly Fibre Art
I stumbled across this on Mary Corbett's Needle and Thread. We did not see these when we zoomed through the V&A in London last April. I wish we had. They were put on display in honor of Pope Benedict XVI's trip to Britain in September.
This is a look at some glorious tapestries designed by Raphael on commission to the Vatican during the 16th century. Awesome is not a big enough word to describe them. Go here if you are unable to view the video here.
