This is the seventh and final scene from the “Unicorn Tapestries”, one of the most remarkable but enigmatic surviving artworks of the late Middle Ages — luxuriously woven in fine wool and silk with silver and gilded threads. Depicting a unicorn hunt, in the penultimate tapestry of the series the unicorn is eventually killed. In this last, however, the unicorn is shown alive and well, and entirely tamed. He is fenced in and chained to a tree, but the chain is less than secure and the fence is low. He has submitted to his captivity. The red stains on his flank, in the words of the Met’s catalog, “do not appear to be blood, as there are no visible wounds like those in the hunting series; rather, they represent juice dripping from bursting pomegranates” — a medieval symbol of marriage and fertility. In the resurrection element there is also a clear parallel with the story of Jesus. (Image source: The Metropolitan Museum)

Museum quality Giclee print printed using archival inks on premium fine art paper — 100% cotton, finely textured, and acid-free archival substrates purposefully chosen for optimal historical art reproduction. Orders for US and Canada will be printed on LexJet Sunset Textured Fine Art Paper (310gsm); Australian orders on Hahnemühle’s Photo Rag (188gsm); and all other orders on St Cuthbert Mill’s Somerset Enhanced Velvet (255gsm).

All frames are custom made to order.

  • Solid wood with a 3/4″ face (and 1″ depth for US orders, 3/4“ elsewhere).
  • 2” acid-free 4-ply natural white mat with beveled edges
  • Shatterproof, high quality UV-shielding acrylic glazing
  • Archival acid-free foam core backing

Why acrylic instead of glass? Although more expensive than glass, like most art-sellers and galleries we’ve chosen acrylic for its superior UV protection, and because it is also lighter and much less breakable — not only does this ensure it gets to you safely, but also handy for when you might want to move house in the future!

All prints, unframed and framed, will be expertly and securely packed to make sure they arrive in top condition.
