The exhibition Beastly! highlights the particularly rich theme of animal representation in the art of tapestry.
The MOU Museum shows for the first time some thirty tapestries from Oudenaarde, Enghien, and Geraardsbergen in which animals play the leading role. Confronting the tapestries are all kinds of objects, including a cabinet of art and curiosities with mounted animals and other “naturalia,” a fantastic dragon skeleton, and a veritable animal parade. In this way, Beastly! offers the visitor a richly varied look at the wonderful world of animals in this period.
Tickets can be purchased online in advance or at the ticketing office on the day.
