Vision of the Holy Grail tapestry, right
Vision of the Holy Grail tapestry, right. This is a detail of the first of the six Holy Grail tapestries designed by Sir Edward Burne-Jones in 1890 and woven by Morris & Co at Merton Abbey for display at Stanmore Hall, Middlesex. William Morris designed the heraldry and John Henry Dearle the backgrounds, leaving Burne-Jones to complete the figures in his peerless style. These were also called the San Graal tapestries and here we see the right portion of the attainment of the knights quest. It is in the Birmingham City Museum. This first in the series is called The Attainment tapestry sometimes referred to as The Achievement tapestry. The three knights are Sir Galahad, Sir Bors and Sir Percival.
This Sans Graal tapestry is finely woven in France in rayon and acrylic and is lined, with a rod pocket for easy hanging.
