Henry VIII's Great Hall at Hampton Court Palace, showing the hammerbeam roof and a series of 16th-century tapestries showing scenes from the life of the patriarch Abraham from the Book of Genesis. The tapestries were probably commissioned by Henry VIII and were certainly first hung in the Great Hall in 1546. They were woven in Brussels from wool, silk, and gold and silver thread.
