Bucintoro Venice is an Italian jacquard woven wall tapestry. The artwork is from a painting by Italian landscape painter Canaltello (1697-1768). The bucentaur, bucintoro in Venetian, was the state barge of the doges of Venice. It was used every year on Ascension Day up to 1798 to take the doge out to the Adriatic Sea to perform the Marriage of the Sea, a ceremony that symbolically wedded Venice to the sea every year on the Festa della Sensa, or Ascension Day. This tapestry has shiny gold threads making for a high end tapestry.
