THE artist Grayson Perry has woven the 21st-century answer to the Bayeux Tapestry.
Instead of the Norman invasion, the Walthamstow Tapestry, which is 49ft long, tells the story of modern Britain’s conquest by the ideology of consumerism.
Three copies of the Walthamstow Tapestry have been made — one will hang at the Victoria Miro gallery in Islington, north London, where this week’s exhibition will open. Another has been bought by a private client and the fate of the third is not yet known.
So, how much did it cost?
