The Unicorn is a French woven jacquard tapestry panel. The unicorn has since medieval times been a symbol of purity and grace. A crowned unicorn is part of the royal coat of arms in the United Kingdom. This charming scene shows a crowned unicorn seated on the forest floor among garlands of flowers and sprigs of acanthus. The lore has been long established that the beast could only be captured by a virgin. Medieval encyclopedias quote claim that the horn was said to have the power to render poisoned water potable and to heal sickness. The unicorn also acquired more orthodox secular meanings, emblematic of chaste love and faithful marriage.
