According to the craftsmen of the beautiful Tapestry Project, it took them a year to create it. The tapestry, in particular, is 70m long and woven to tell the tale of the final days of King Harold’s encounter with William the Conqueror in battle. However, until now that tale did not include the coronation of William, which happened on Christmas Day 1066. According to historians, the final segment of the Bayeux Tapestry was lost, that’s why the islanders began the project to restore it. Meanwhile, Kate Russell, Alderney librarian, along with 416 Alderney residents worked on the project.

According to the craftsmen, they began the original tapestry from the Battle of Hastings. Discovered in the early 18th Century, it ended with the death of King Harold at Hastings.

Symbolic Green color in British folklore

Green is a truly symbolic color in Celtic folklore, and in particular, in British forlklore.

Many humans, especially in Scotland, traditionally refused to wear this color so as not to offend their fairy neighbors. Indeed, some Scottish families considered it fatal to use this color. Meanwhile, common associations between the green color and flourishing vegetation point to the fairies’ earlier incarnation as spirits of fertility and abundance.

This is the story of a woman – a state ideal, whose family was humiliated and practically destroyed. By the way, the name “woman in gold” appeared much later. Gustav Klimt painted portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer in 1907, at the time she was 26 years old. The portrait was commissioned by her husband, “sugar king” of Europe, Ferdinand Bauer. Their union was approved by the parents on both sides, because both spouses were from the elite families of the Vienna Jewish community.
