Slipcover "Rabbit" The Lady and the Unicorn

Slipcover "Rabbit" The Lady and the Unicorn

This cushion is inspired by the tapestry The Lady and the Unicorn. This famous series of wall hangings, commissioned by Jean Le Viste, member of a rich family from Lyon (France), is one of the tapestry masterpieces of the National Museum of Medieval Art, Paris. The six scenes stand out against a background of a multitude of cut flowers, like the bouquets that were strewn on the ground in front of processions or noble residences. Presented like a set of plant illustrations, these simple flowers that include the daisy, violet, carnation, periwinkle and mint evoke the domestic or courtly gardens of the end of the Middle Ages.
