15C Another SPRING Picnic Outdoors
15C The Repas Champetre Tapestry which could translate to meal in the fields. Originally woven at Tournai at the end of the 15C, this tapestry depicts richly-dressed country folk holding a banquet not in a formal garden, but in a rustic landscape. Shepherds & their charges surround the diners. Music comes from a bagpiper in the distance and a shepherd boy in the foreground.
