Batavia Tapestry on show at the Australian National Maritime Museum

The Australian National Maritime Museum has recently unveiled a stunning new large-scale embroidered work by Melbourne textile artist Melinda Piesse that illustrates the tragic story of the wreck of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) flagship Batavia in 1629.  

The Batavia tapestry is on display in Sydney until 29 October 2017 and is included in the free galleries ticket.
