Tapestries in the Domschatz in Halberstadt

The mid-12th century Abraham and angels tapestry (left) is 10.26 m long while the Christ and the Apostles tapestry (right) from the same period measures 9 by 1.32 m. Both are in remarkably good condition with the colors still vibrant. These are the oldest picture tapestries in Europe.
