"The Unicorn in Captivity" is a remarkable replica from the celebrated series "The Unicorn Tapestries," also known as "La Chasse à la licorne." Created between 1495 and 1505 in the South Netherlands, these seven tapestries are now housed at The Cloisters in New York. This particular piece is distinguished by its vivid red background, depicting a unicorn peacefully resting within a circular fence, symbolizing its capture. The unicorn, embodying purity and grace, exudes a sense of serene mysticism despite its confinement. The tapestry's mille fleur ("thousand flowers") backdrop, rich with a variety of flora, enhances its enchanting allure. Jacquard woven in Belgium, the tapestry showcases exceptional craftsmanship and intricate detail. "The Unicorn in Captivity" exemplifies medieval tapestry art, reflecting the rich symbolic and aesthetic traditions of the era, and remains a treasured historical artifact.
