Unicorn Tapestry Wall Hanging

The Unicorn Tapestries at The Cloisters of the MET in New York City are renowned for their beauty and botanical accuracy. The tapestries depict the hunt of the Unicorn, a mythical creature first mentioned by the Greek physician Ctesias in the fourth century B.C. In the Middle Ages the animal was known for its supposed invincibility and the therapeutic property of its horn.
