the unicorn in captivity is the most famous of the unicorn tapestries set (also known as the hunt of the unicorn) rumored to have been made between 1495-1505, we don’t know to this day who was responsible for this piece, the noble who commissioned it and what is its meaning. 

Found in a looting at the french revolution in 1680, the original tapestry and the answers regarding its beautiful craftsmanship may be lost forever.

This is a homage to one of my favorite pieces of art.
