The lady and the unicorn

today i took myself on a bit of an adventure. I rose before the sun and caught the train to Sydney. My main destination was the art gallery of NSW. I have been to the art gallery several times before. But this time i was heading for a special exhibition.

as you can see in the images it was a beautiful sunny Australian day

not a cloud to be seen, but still i couldn't wait to be inside

The art gallery of NSW is currently exhibiting the 500 year old French Tapestries titled 
The Lady and the Unicorn



they created this fabulous entry for us to walk through and the fabric was of course Millefleur


the six tapestries were all hung all together in a semi circle, interestingly they were different sizes which is possibly due to the fact that they were custom made to fit a particular space.
interestingly they don't know whom they were made for or even exactly where the were made, but they suspect they were made in a famous tapestry workshop in Paris in around 1500


there are many theory…
