On the far left of the tapestry, Queen Guinevere hands Sir Lancelot his shield and Sir Gawaine, who fails the quest, is mounted on the far right of the tapestry. A richly vibrant mille-fleur of golds, burgundies, greens and blues on a striking black background surround the figures. This tapestry also features an acanthus border.
