The Lady and the Unicorn tapestries

 

Perhaps some of the finest Medieval tapestries were the Dame a la Licorne or The Lady and the Unicorn tapestries which were woven circa 1490 and now hang in the Cluny museum in Paris.

Australians will be able to experience the extraordinary tapestries this year at the Art Gallery of NSW as renovation work at the Musee de Cluny means the series can make a rare trip away from France – flying on separate planes for safety’s sake, accompanied by a platoon of museum staff to oversee their hanging.
