Fragment from a Coptic wall hanging, 5th century, Egypt. Large rectangular textile incorporates both Roman and Christian imagery. Arcades containing hunters on horseback recall Roman sources, while the roundels with angels are clearly Christian. Similar imagery, (fruit baskets) can be found on the wall paintings of Umayyad desert palaces in Syria. Early textiles like this, woven by Coptic Christians, have survived the centuries due to the dry climate
