Translated into English by wall tapestry, the wall hanging should not be confused with the tapestry as we know it. Indeed, historically, the tapestry was a large piece of fabric covering the walls of castles and intended to insulate them from the cold.

During the medieval period, tapestry became a real decorative art, as shown by the famous tapestry of the Apocalypse that some of you have certainly had the chance to admire at the castle of Angers.
