Agnus Dei, Antique French Religious Banner

LCT HOME
Antique French processional Religious Banner with Agnus Dei, C’ 1800’s. French in origin, Circa 1800’s. This original religious banner would have been carried upon a tall mast for processions and within the church as decoration. The Agnus Dei Lamb of God centre detail is beautiful, the lambs body is tufted coiled metallic threads with fine metal legs and head. There are thread wrapped extensions in a sunburst design radiating from behind the lamb. Agnus Dei (meaning Lamb of God) is a Christian symbol dating from the first century that represents Christ as a lamb, or “the Lamb of God”. The amazing embroidery shows hours of handwork, gold threads made of metal and silken threads create a stunning design. The lamb is lying on the book and cross laid beside, the book is pictured on a bed of sold silver metal thread clouds. The base fabric for the banner is a golden silk type fabric. A twisted metal fringing surrounds the bottom edge of the banner and lines the top, this is stunning in fine twisted metal. There are loops across the top for the procession pole to feed through. The back of the banner is plain gold fabric, same fabric as the front but brighter in its original colour. 91Cm Height, 55Cm Width, 1Cm Depth Approx On Lamb
