  7. 7. The Bayeux Tapestry is actually an embroidery. This work of art is the first manuscript of the collections held at the municipal library of the city of Bayeux, located in Normandy, France. The Tapestry is a historical account, but also an essential source of information on the way of life in the Middle Ages in general, and the 11th century in particular: it is therefore a documentary record which employs particular narrative techniques and makes use of symbolism, as do many literary and artistic works of the Romanesque period. It is a unique work: there is no other similar document to compare it with. It retains to this day an element of mystery, and several questions have not yet been fully answered. The truly exceptional character of the Tapestry also lies in its size: it is 68.80 metres long, 50 centimetres high, and weighs close to 350 kilograms (original cloth and lining). For this reason, it needs to be exhibited in a very specific way. http://www.unesco.org/new/en/communication-and-information/flagship-projectactivities/memory-of-the-world/register/full-list-of-registered-heritage/registeredheritage-page-1/bayeux-tapestry/ http://www.arthistoryspot.com/2009/10/ba yeux-tapestry/
  8. 8. Why are their myths and legends of weavers? “Those who spun for Athena were the Moirae (the Fates). The Moirae spun, measured, and cut the thread of human lives. They were often personified as three ugly and sometimes lame old women.”
