Some more details of the Great Tapestry of Scotland for you this morning. You’ll find the first post in the series here.
Panel 27: Haakon at Kyleankin. Signature of the South Skye stitchers who created this panel, which depicts twelfth century Norweigan / Scottish conflicts. The Orkney and Shetland islands remained in Norweigan / Danish hands until 1469.
Panel 36: Rosslyn Chapel The famous piping angel of Rosslyn Chapel
Panel 51: Droving One of many panels where Crummy’s drawings and the work of the stitchers inventively combine the human figure and the landscape. The figure of the drover emerges from and merges with the rolling hills and green fields.
More details tomorrow . . .
