Unicorn Tapestries: unicorn as a Monalisa

Unicorn Tapestries are the most complex and staggering artwork surviving medieval time

Looking for unicorns? You as well might find them in magical herds like that one of Cloisters Museum (Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan), well, if you can afford a trip up there. If you prefer something trippy & outside the box, take a ride to Mitchell Landsman’s art here.
