- Feb 8, 2013Both of these images are 14th century paintings of late 10th/early 11th centtury saints Boris and Gleb of the Kievan Rus.
There is obviously "something" going on with the interior of their cloaks. (The red cloak moreso than the black brocade(?) cloak, but on the left picture you can see definite detail of what looks to me like squares and stitches.
Does anyone know of a quilted cloak? I've never heard of such a thing, but this could be a 14th century thing being applied to the 11th century saints. And I know nothing of the 14th century.
