The needlework known as Opus Anglicanum represents the finest of medieval English embroidery, in both the secular and ecclesiastic worlds. The skilled workmanship, heavy use of metallic and colored silk threads, and extraordinary attention to detail that define that period are represented here. Each figure in this orphrey band is individual in hair, expression, clothing and headwear; the faces show emotion and detail; there is subtlety in the folds of the garments. This is embroidery at its height. A nearly identical piece depicting different prophets is in the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art.
