|Tapestry with the
"life of shepherds"
the main subject of this tapestry in gobelin technique seems to be the putting to pasture of shep. Moreover there are in the centre three pairs playing several games which are presently not known. The top of the tapestry shows hunters on horses and sportsmen with dogs. On top at the left side a wall and buildings can be made out.

|Saint Anna and other
St. Anne with Christ and her mother Marie are represented in the center of this embroidered tapestry. On the right hand side there are the saints St. Lorence and St. Blasius, on the left hand side St. Stephanus and St. Christopherus.
Some other tapestries show similarities, like the one
bearing the date of 1588 in the Historic Museum of
Thurgau, Frauenfeld, and anotherone in
Villingen-Schweningen (southern Germany).
