Tapestry Designer: Karen Dixon

Medieval Coat of Arms Tapestry Hanging

This design in based on thecoat of arms of the Crichton-Stuart family who were the builders of the original 13th century Castell Coch (Red Castle) near Cardiff, Wales. It appears in the banqueting hall of the wonderful 19th century rebuild, which is the most fabulous Victorian gothic fantasy of how they believed a medieval castle would look. The later version was built by William Burges for Lord Bute. It is absolutely stunning, with hardly any surface left unpainted, including many original pieces of furniture. Well worth a visit!

The motto reads 'Carpe Diem' - 'Seize the Day'.

The tapestry is worked on 12hpi canvas and measures 21in x 18 in (47cm x 46cm) suitable for a wall hanging or large pillow.
