Tapestry of the Manufacture Royale des Gobelins commissioned by Louis XIV

Tapestry of the Manufacture Royale des Gobelins illustrating a hunting meal probably in the forest of Soignes, more specifically on the theme: "hunts of Maximilian".
This tapestry symbolizes the month of November and represents a hunting banquet after the "cartons" of the painter Bernard Van Orley, by the "maître d’ouvrage" Jean Delacroix Father. The foreground shows a table of fortune on which is laid a nape and trays around which rich lords are preparing to eat. Several hunters and their emblems refer to Charles V. The servants who bring the dishes are distinguished by the white cloth that carry the arm or around the shot. The second set table is surrounded by armed people who are also preparing to eat. The Sun King Louis XIV is symbolized by the representation of the sun on a vase placed below the central table. The border that frames the tapestry is richly decorated with patterns of tori, laurels, scrolls of flowers and fruit with birds probably attributed to Jean or William Tons. The upper part is illustrated by a medallion representing the sagittarius sign.

It was commissioned by royal order of Louis XIV in 1704 and completed in 1708 for the Royal Castle of Fontainebleau
