Raphael Tapestry St. Paul In Prison

The tapestry tells the story of Paul’s imprisonment and miraculous escape.

The tapestry conservation laboratory uses a conservative method of caring for the organic and inorganic materials that enter through the Vatican. The team of experts have catalogued, disinfected, documented and conserved over one thousand works that were in a weak state of preservation due to age. The tapestry laboratory has completed restorations inside The Gallery of Tapestries, and The Raphael Tapestry on the lateral walls of the Sistine Chapel.
