17 Gallo Way
condition: good
This is a large cloth tapestry, 130” x 77” featuring the Biblical scene of Judah’s repentance(Judah and Benjamin, Genesis 44:33) with a motto written in Latin at the top.

The motif and style seem to be after the 16th Century Flemish tapestries of similar Genesis scenes of the tribes of Israel, though this might be a later Flemish, French or Belgian 18th Century production.

As can be seen, this is a very old tapestry with its back been reinforced in the past, possibly a few times over a long period of time by adding additional layers of fabric. There are some spots of torn texture with small narrow holes.
