Oft Ignored Images from the Bayeux Tapestry
Penny Nickels at Mr.Xstitch did a wonderful blog entry about the history of sexual imagery in textile arts. I have just seen a slide show of the Bayeux Tapestry presented by the Mad River Chapter of the EGA, but I don't remember seeing this. That's because many reproductions/depictions censor or change the image. Unfortuntely it also hides what is obviously an important part of the story (otherwise why put it on there). Close up's can be seen at Mr.XStitch link.
I haven't attached the bone yet,just wanted to see how it looks.
