More domestic art in England

Two details from "table carpets." Artist unknown. Victoria and Albert Museum.

The mansion on the left is interestingly designed in a rather exotic classical style with its domes and pillars; the main gate, moat, and drawbridge, however, look more like a medieval castle.

On the right, a huntsman "winds" his horn while his dog leads the way.

Both images are reproductions of "table carpets" created by women in Sixteenth-century England.
