Extreme sculptural 3D effects are common in the tapestries. The dragons especially seem about to leap from the surface and fly free.
Those silver spiral horns on the dragon are at least 2 inches (5 cm) high. The temple doors that the dragons are guarding and the silver roof tiles and spirals are all extreme high relief.
A surprise for me were the dragon eyes and whiskers. I checked for an elaborate special stitch only seen in dragon eyes. Nope. All fuzzy wuzzy pom-poms! And on the tips of dragon whiskers as well!
