I love how it came out so much I can't ❤️❤️
“The imaginary world of Hayao Miyazaki in Aubusson tapestries” project has unveiled a new tapestry today. It’s the banquet scene from Spirited away where Chihiro confronts No-face, and it’s GLORIOUS.
Pictures are from Catsuka and Cité internationale de la tapisserie’s insta. You can also see it here in video (all in French sorry!), 40min has the “tombée de métier” (when weavers cut the warp threads once a tapestry is finished) and 1h08min is when they unveil it.
Aubusson manufacture project is to make 5 full size tapestries from Ghibli’s works using traditional weaving techniques.
They have already worked on Princess Mononoke, finished last year:
But the scenes I anticipate the most are coming, as they are now starting to work on Howl’s Moving Castle - especially Howl’s wizard bedroom :D
They are atm working on the cartons (weaving guide/blueprints):
Spirited Away tapestry will stay exposed in Aubusson for the moment, while Mononoke one will be shown at Opéra de Bordeaux in March, and in Musée du Quai Branly in Paris this summer ;)
