A very decorative weaving tapestries in wool and silk, the herons an idealized landscape with gegabeltem river, Fish, and distinctive trees and plants. In the Background a castle or monastery architecture watches over the idyllic Scenery. The Paradise of character is highlighted by a fountain on the right edge. For the decoration needs of large halls such works of art played a decisive role, especially since cyclic representations with mythological or religious subjects enjoyed a particularly high priority. More abstract motifs, Verduren, or so-called "Feuille de Chou", found in contrast, a particulate use. In the age of the Baroque, often, paintings, engravings or drawings to serve as models of wool knitting. From the Flemish art of the painter and Etcher Roeland Savery (1576-1639), especially for its scenery with a rich animal staffage known. In his compositions, and herons, are found repeatedly along rivers. A model can be assumed.
