Description
MEASURING AT 65 X 47 INCHES (APPROXIMATELY 165 X 120 CM), 'THE NAPOLEON' IS A BEAUTIFULLY WOVEN TAPESTRY OF A RICH WINE COLOR THAT EXUDES THE LUXURY AND DECADENCE OF THE FRENCH EMPIRE. THE TAPESTRY SHOWS THE EMBLEM OF THE NAPOLEONIC REGIME. THE EAGLE AT THE CENTER IS SYMBOLIC OF IMPERIAL ROME, AND IT IS CLUTCHING A THUNDERBOLT, WHICH REPRESENTS JUPITER, RULER OF THE ROMAN GODS. THE BEES SYMBOLIZE IMMORTALITY AND RESURRECTION, AS THEY ARE SEEN AS THE OLDEST SYMBOLS OF FRANCE. THE HAND OF JUSTICE AND THE SCEPTER REFER TO THE CORONATION OF CHARLEMAGNE, AFTER WHICH NAPOLEON MODELED HIS OWN CORONATION.
