Since I'm still on my Lost kick...
From what I can see in screen snaps, calling this piece a 'tapestry' doesn't seem to fit with what I understand tapestries to be - woven images. It looks more like it's painted on in some images:
And the images from the auction of the corner piece I'm replicating seem to be an embroidery/needlepoint sort of execution.
I'm going for what it looks like on the show, the embroidery:
Rather than actually making a tapestry that it's supposed to be - because it's easier (which is why they probably made the props that way!)
Here is what I have so far.
It's my first attempt ever to needlepoint and I'm learning as I go. If it turns out crappy I may redo it, but so far, from a distance, anyway, it's not bad.
My ultimate plan is to mount it with a replica knife on some sort of board so that it hangs on the wall like was shown in the cabin:
Will have to find a good place for it where nobody is going to walk into it.
Side note: I'm doubting the one sold is the same that was screen used, based on the bottom right hand corner differences from the screen shot and the catalog photo - and it doesn't even look like what was hung in the cabin is either of them from the way it's frayed or that it's an actual cut out piece from the tapestry; the weave in the screen snap of Jacob weaving is WAY more loose than the close up image of the piece held in hand by Bram. I'm going for something in between all of these...
