A Mon Seul Desir

Detailed Image
A Mon Seul Desir 
Meaning “With My Only Desire”, A Mon Seul Desir tapestry is the main work in the series of six tapestries known collectively as “Dame a la Licorne”. Commissioned by Jean Le Viste, the entire series was woven in the mills of Flanders in the early 16th century, most likely 1511. It commemorates Le Viste’s ascension to the royal court of King Louis XI. This piece features a lady and her lady in waiting. She is seen placing her jeweled necklace into her jewelry box. It is thought to mean the rejection of temptation and self-denial. As with other pieces in “The Lady with the Unicorn” collection, the family crest of the Le Vistes is portrayed on the two banners. After Jean’s death, the series passed from one family member to the other. Today, it can be seen at the Musee National du Moyen Age in an oval room specially built for the six tapestries. A Mon Seul Desir tapestry is lined and has a tunnel for easy hanging in your home. Note: tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are purchased separately.

After only 2 weeks, my beautiful tapestry arrived! It is perfect, I just love it, and have had so many favourable comments from family and friends.

Ordered a tapestry to very short timescales just before Christmas... not expecting to receive before the New Year. Extremely surprised when it arrived just before Christmas during all the really snowy weather

...& even more surprised at the high quality of the tapestry. I am now about to place an order for another tapestry for my daughter's 18th birthday.

Highly recommended!

David, England
