This tapestry was framed at Burmingham Art Gallery in Birmingham, Michigan owned by John McKinney as noted by the label on the back of the piece. Sadly, research on Mr. McKinney and his gallery revealed he was the senseless victim of murder by gunshot in his gallery in November 1977 at the age of 50, and remains unsolved to this day.
