This tapestry is based upon the 1900 painting of the same name currently in the Tate by Sir Frank Dicksee (1853-1928).

The Two Crowns of the title are the golden crown of a king and the crown of thorns worn by Christ on the cross. Dicksee invented this highly moral scene in which a medieval king, riding in a triumphal procession, is startled by the sight of a crucifix (or perhaps sees a vision of Christ) and is reminded of the transience of earthly power and success. In fact the chivalric, Christian knight had been a role model for the modern gentleman for most of the nineteenth century.

This tapestry has a rod pocket incorporated in the lining on the back for hanging.
