The Secret Forest
The Secret Forest is a verdure tapestry wall-hanging of a woodland scene from a series of tapestries designed in the mid sixteenth century by Flemish painter, Michael Coxcie (1499-1592). Known as the Jagaloon Tapestries, this enormous collection was commissioned by Sigismund II Augustus for his castle on the Wawel. 136 of them are currently on display at the Wawelburcht Castle in Cracow, Poland.
The word "verdure" comes from the old French word verd, meaning green, itself a corruption of the original Latin word viridis. Historians are unsure when the first verdure tapestries were made, but by the 16th century they had risen to become a popular form of textile art in their own right.
This Belgian tapestry is lined and has a tunnel for hanging a tapestry.
