A beautiful hand woven Flemish wall tapestry depicting Pieter Bruegel the Elder’s famous painting The Hunters in the Snow (1565).

Hunters in the Snow is one of six works that form the artist’s painting cycle entitled Months. The title is apt, as each canvas is meant to represent the activities of the countryside-dwelling peasantry during two months of the year; Hunters represent January and February. Bruegel painted the entire cycle in the year 1565, and all but one canvas have survived to present-day. The original of Haymaking, which is the best preserved of the remaining five paintings, belongs to the permanent collection at Lobkowicz Palace Museum, where it is displayed year-round.

Special note: The reverse side of this product has a pocket that allows the tapestry to be hung by a rod (not included).

Dimensions: 25.6 x 43.3 in (65 x 110 cm)
