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.

  1. I didn't get to see them either, they were actually installing them when I was at the V&A in August and there were security guards everywhere including the street. We didn't know what was going on until we saw it on the news the next day.
