This is one of my favourite exhibits at the Burrell, a 15th (or was it 16th) century German tapestry of Old Testament stories. Some of them are easier to spot than others – it should be reasonably easy for you to see Jonah and the whale, and Daniel in the Lions’ Den is there too (typical me, I missed most of the well-known stories off the photo). I think there are 34 stories in total.
