Objects of art are frequently used to display the owner's wealth and power as well as their aesthetic sensitivity. In Europe, tapestries were particularly popular not only because they made a bold statement by their size alone, but also because they were a portable form of art which could be taken down, rolled up, and transported to another site to be displayed and impress a new audience.
