Hunt of the Unicorn tapestry
The Hunt of the Unicorn tapestry - the first from the famous series of seven tapestries at the Metropolitan Cloisters, New York. They were originally woven in the southern Netherlands between 1495 and 1505 in wool, silk, silver and gilt. This tapestry is sometimes called "Amour Eternelle".
This series of tapestries show the unicorn (Christ) being hunted, killed and then resurrected. They also feature fertility allegorical depictions well known at the time and the letters AE since they may have been commissioned by Anne of Brittany for her wedding to Louis XII.
This fine tapestry is now woven in Belgium in a thick, tight weave with 84% cotton, lined, with a rod pocket. We supply hanging information with every order.
