Licorne Captive - Blue

Detailed Image
Licorne Captive - Blue 
Designed as a wedding gift for Anne of Brittany and her new husband Charles VIII in 1491, “Licorne Captive - Blue” was produced in France in the l5th century. Unicorns were a popular subject of paintings and tapestries of the time. The larger work, known as “La Chasse de la Licorne”, or “Hunt of the Unicorn”, was filled with medieval symbolism. In this scene the unicorn has finally been captured. The piece just before it shows the unicorn in death. When the two are combined, it was meant to demonstrate the healing properties often associated with unicorns. To many, it also symbolized Christ rising from the dead. The original series can now be found in The Cloisters Museum in New York City. This reproduction is faithful to the original. This tapestry is lined on the back and has a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are purchased separately.

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!
