A tapestry honoring Olympic competitors, displayed in Paris

Ahead of the 2024 Summer Olympics, which are scheduled to start in Paris on July 26, the Franco-Iranian artist Marjane Satrapi exhibited a tapestry on Tuesday that features Olympic athletes competing close to the Eiffel Tower. Reuters says that the artwork was created.

The triptych weighs sixty kilograms and is nine meters long. It is composed of wool. It took three years to produce, using the Gobelins tapestry workshops.

The tapestry features colorful silhouettes of athletes, either in the middle of competition or about to start one, with the Eiffel Tower in the distance and the skyline of Paris in the background.

When asked to create the tapestry, the artist stated she felt it was a prank.

„When I was called, I thought it was a joke, but it wasn’t. I was delighted, very honored, very happy, but also very stressed,” said Satrapi, the author of the graphic novel ‘Persepolis,’ which earned her an Oscar nomination for its film adaptation in 2008.

Beginning in the middle of June, the tapestry will be on display at the Hôtel de la Marine located on the Place de la Concorde in the French capital. The installation will be transported to Nice, the site of the 2030 Winter Games, once the Paralympic Games conclude in September.
