The Tapestry at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is an outstanding piece of artwork.  It measures 7m wide (22ft) and 2m high (6ft6in) and depicts characters from various sporting and concert events held at the MCG.  There are nearly 200 figures depicted and are placed in chronological order from the left.

This unique piece was one of the Victorian Tapestry Workshop‘s most ambitious projects and is an absolute treasure.  It was great to visit the MCG and spend time viewing the tapestry and picking out various people throughout time.  It’s really worth a look.
