Bayeux themed overmantel

Project Info

Project Description

Above the fireplace in a faux medieval gatehouse, this parget was inspired by the 11thC Bayeux Tapestry and shows William the Conqueror on his ship as he is about to invade England. The main ship is in high relief, the trees are in low relief, the background ships are incised into the wet plaster and the horses are modelled on the bench so this parget shows nearly every pargeting technique that there is.
