30 Foot Tapestry Depicts Scenes from the Saga


By: Lillian Skye

Looking for a cool new wall decoration? For a small sum of $20,000, a Star Wars tapestry depicting scenes from the Saga could be yours. On exhibit in Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles, the 30 foot tapestry depicts scenes from The Phantom Menace through Return of the Jedi and includes quotes from all six movies written in Aurebesh around the images. Yoda training Luke on Dagobah from Empire, the Slave 1 attacking Obi-Wan's starfighter in Clones, and Palpatine assuming the position of Galactic Emperor in Revenge of the Sithare few of the scenes featured.

There are seven stitches per inch, and according to the tapestry's creator artist Aled Lewis, what has come to be called the "Coruscant Tapestry" is 30 feet by 13 inches, and is available for purchase now on Gallery 1988's website

Although the website claims that photos don't do the work justice, to see more images of the tapestry check out Gallery 1988's tumblr
