About the object

The textile fragment belonged to a larger wall hanging or bench drape. The Munzingen family's coat of arms appears in the outer fields on the left against a green background, and on the right, we see the Falkenstein family's coat of arms. There is a unique scene in the middle: Alexander the Great is a guest at the palace of the Indian queen Candace borne on the back of an elephant.
