Apocalypse Tapestry

Highly recommended
Displayed in Angers Castle, the Apocalypse Tapestry is believed to have been created between 1373 and 1383. Originally 133m long and 6m high, it was composed of 6 sections, each comprising a figure seated on a dais looking onto two cycles of 7 scenes. White rectangles punctuate the 6 chapters running left to right and top to bottom. The tapestry recounts the final book of the New Testament, the Apocalypse.
