The Baldishol tapestry is the oldest in Norway, and one of the oldest in Europe. It was found in the 17th century church at Baldishol in Nes, demolished in 1879. It was discovered balled up and covered in clay, under a footrest used by the bellringer. The handy bit of old cloth had been used to stop the draught from the old floor. As you can see, it cleaned up nicely to show part of a calendar. The fragment shows April and May.
This fabulous piece has been used as the theme for an exhibition currently being held at Norway House, Minneapolis. Fortunately, there is a virtual tour, which might well let you get closer to the exhibits than if you were actually there. It is really hard to choose a favourite piece.
But then, it is quite hard to choose a favourite piece of the original.
