Lady and the Unicorn tapestry - to my sole desire
This beautiful tapestry has been inspired by The Lady and the Unicorn tapestries that were woven in Flanders in the 15th century. Five of the tapestries in the series depict the five senses - taste, hearing, sight, smell and touch.
The sixth tapestry represents love and all of the tapestries depict a noble lady with a unicorn and a lion. This tapestry illustrates the sixth tapestry in the series and is truly magnificent and rich in detail.
In the tapestry a lady stands before a tent with her handmaiden holding a chest beside her. The lady is placing the necklace she has worn in all the previous tapestries into the chest and it is the only tapestry in which the lady is smiling. The lion and the unicorn frame the lady and on top of the tent is written 'Mon Seul D'sir' which means 'my one sole desire'.
The original tapestries are considered one of the greatest works of art of the Middle Ages and this is the perfect chance to have a piece of medieval history in your home.
