             Border Fragment, full view Border Fragment, detail 1
By the 16th Century borders had become an important element in the design of tapestries. This fragment, the lower right corner of the missing Lost Cyclist tapestry, demonstrates how images and symbols in the border reflect the primary subject matter of the tapestry. Here we see the cyclist riding toward what appears to be a rift in the fabric of time and space.
