This is a tapestry reprodiction of the famous medieval Unicorn In Captivity tapestry. The unicorn represents the beloved tamed. He is tethered to a tree and constrained by a fence, but the chain is not secure and the fence is low enough to leap over: The unicorn could escape if he wished. However his confinement is a happy one, to which the ripe, seed-laden pomegranates in the tree—a medieval symbol of fertility and marriage—testify. Many of the other plants represented here, such as wild orchid, bistort, and thistle, echo this theme of marriage and procreation.
Great gift for any medieval history inspired collection, medieval pictures collection or any medieval tapestry collection!
