The War of Troy

It seems I jumped the gun when I announced that the V&A Museum's new Medieval & Renaissance Galleries opened on 2 November (CLICK). Sorry, folks. They open tomorrow: 2 December. Must get new spectacles. Above, Antonio Minello's Statuette of Mercury (1527) examines the War of Troy Tapestry, which will be on display to the public for the first time in 20 years. The 10 new galleries tell the story of European art and design from the fall of the Roman Empire to the end of the Renaissance (AD300 to 1600). Click the title link for a BBC News' video showing some of the treasures to be seen.
