la Belle Melusine

I'm determined to relate this image to those of the last two posts, as being part of the same enchanted realm. A 14th century tale tells of la Belle Melusine, daughter of a mortal king and the faerie Elinas Pressine, here in a wedding procession near the Forest Coulombiers.

I love the fairies, the patterned detail, the gnome men carrying the chest, and all of the women. This is beautiful, looking very much like a tapestry.
