A tapestry is saved from Notre Dame

However the tapestry has been rarely seen. It had been stored in two parts in trunks which protected it from the molten lead falling from the roof, but the tapestry had soaked up huge amounts of water, which swelled its weight to three tonnes from just one tonne.

After extensive work the public will have a chance to see the tapestry during an open house at the Mobilier National during the European Heritage Days on 21-22 September.
