  The author here describes a table carpet, now in Munich, Bayerisches Nationalmuseum.
This tapestry is the central part of her master of art thesis, which has not been published. It is therefore very important to have this article with some black and white pictures and with references.

The stile of this embroidery is very close to a series of embroideries in the Textilmuseum St.Gallen with scenes from the story of Tobias.
