The cotton, silk and metal thread tapestry features a many-coloured rich floral decoration with two large modules including monstrances, typical elements of local textile tradition. The artefact, like the rest of the production of this workshop, reinterprets the symbols of a secret stylistic jargon devoted to local material culture. This precious and refined decoration may be appreciated by a careful eye.
