Unicorn in Captivity II 
This unicorn tapestry "Unicorn in Captivity II" shows the scene from the Hunt of the Unicorn tapestries, originally created in 14951505. The Unicorn in Captivity are a series of seven tapestries were commissioned by Anne of Brittany for her marriage to Louis XII. In the seventh scene, seen here, we see the unicorn alive in a pen, surrounded by a field of flowers, where in the previous scenes he was found, captured and killed. This return to life by the unicorn represents its power of resurrection and renewal, which reflects the second scene where the unicorn was seen cleansing the water of the fountain. The 16th century original is in the Cloisters museum of medieval art in New York. These tapestries were owned by the La Rochefoucauld family of France for centuries. Then in 1922 John D. Rockefeller Jr purchased the tapestries for over a million dollars. In 1937, they were given to the Cloisters and are now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and their value now is immeasurable. The incredible intricacy of the design is seen here in this tapestry of the unicorn in the thousand flower of Mille-Fleur background. This unicorn tapestry "Unicorn in Captivity II" is backed with a lining and has a tunnel for easy hanging.

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!
