The Lady and the Unicorn Sight

Regular price €250

A magnificent French vintage tapestry. The needlepoint canvas wall hanging is a reproduction of one of the tapestries from the famous the Lady and the Unicorn (La Dame à la licorne in French) series of 6 tapestries. This one depicts "The Sight" (La Vue).

"The Lady and the Unicorn is the modern title given to a series of six tapestries woven in Flanders from wool and silk, from designs drawn in Paris around 1500. The set, on display in the Musée national du Moyen Âge in Paris, is often considered one of the greatest works of art of the Middle Ages in Europe.

Five of the tapestries are commonly interpreted as depicting the five senses: taste, hearing, sight, smell, and touch. The sixth displays the words "À mon seul désir". The tapestry's meaning is obscure, but has been interpreted as representing love or understanding.

The tapestries are created in the style of mille-fleurs (meaning: "thousand flowers")."

This vintage French tapestry is overall good condition. For a safe shipping, it will be sent without the back wooden frame. 
Please take a close look at the photos, they are an integral part of the description.
