The Leveler Picture Hanging Tool
Even way before 300 BC in the ancient history, hanging anything on the wall, in short called wall hangings, wa a common sight. The most commonly found wall hangings were in the form of tapestries, an ancient art form where vertical pieces of loom have weavings on them. Paintings hung on the walls were equally popular. These hangings were transported from place to place by the noblemen. The tapestries were hung for two reasons: One was obviously in the form of a decorative piece but secondly, the rug hung on the wall provided warmth during the cold times. Hangings also took space on the wall for religious reasons, especially the Greek used to do a lot of this as they put up pictures and tapestries of Hestia, the Greek Goddess. The Greek military found another purpose out of wall hangings. Essential and major military maps, information on battles, kingdom history, border maps, a family’s history etc. were imprinted on those hangings. Anyhow, most of the hangings that were brought out between the 1300s and 1500s were backed by a Christian subject matter.
