This courtly tapestry depicts various elegantly dressed figures from both the Old and New Testaments, including Daniel and Nicodemus, the Pharisee who helped Joseph of Arimathea in taking Christ’s body from the cross. The figure writing at the center labeled ‘LEVCIs’ is presumably emblematic of the Book of Leviticus from the Old Testament, in which Moses outlined many of God’s laws. The format of the tapestry, with the crowd of figures enclosed by columns, suggests that it originally formed part of a larger narrative series, with different scenes depicted in various compartments (for other late Gothic tapestries using similar architectural compartments, see an example with scenes from the story of the Prodigal Son in the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, illustrated in C.J. Adelson, European Tapetsry in the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, New York, 1994, pp. 56-59; and a tapestry with scenes from the Life of the Virgin in the Metropolitan Museum, New York, illustrated in A. Cavallo, Mediaeval Tapestries in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, 1993, pp. 285-291).
