Here is a link to a pdf document describing the tapestry and works of art.

Bond Dans Tapestry reverse and modified color image

A friend has found a large color picture of the tapestry in a yearbook with dance images published by a cultural group Föreningen Norden.    The picture is a mirror image of the tapestry.    Possibly at some point the picture negative was flipped.

As of 30 June 2016,  I have found a 2014 web link describing the tapestry plate II and pages 24,25.
Böttiger, John, Svenska Statens Samling af Väfda Tapeter.  Stockholm 1898
John Böttiger dated the tapestry to Sweden circa 1540 to 1550.   He found the figures based on Sebald Behams works circa 1535,   Bartsch VIII 154-163, and especially 168.   He wrote it was possibly in a royal inventory in 1553.   ( page 21.  a tapestry with 2 couples dancing and musicians
playing pipa and a qvinnobellette medt en giga )

This is available for viewing from the U.S.   Swedish copyright expired 70 years after Böttiger's
 death in 1936?
