This is a fragment of a tapestry now located at the Musée des Gobelins, Paris.

The motifs include a male and female shepherd. Their clothes are plain but in good condition; the woman wears a pouch-belt slung to the right (visible), with a small round box and two other items handing from the top edge; the man wears a simple belt and no purse of any kind.
