To My Only Desire

The Lady and the Unicorn

Courtesy of Musee National Of Moyen Age, Paris

I have seen this tapestry in Paris years ago. It was hanging in a room with 5 others all depicting a young lady and a white unicorn. The first five tapestries have encryption: Taste, Sight, Touch, Smell, Hearing. The sixth one has an encryption To My Only Desire. Nobody could explain why is this different and what does that mean. I personally cannot quite explain even the first five ones, but the sixth seems even more beautiful as it is even more mysterious. 

 Having them all hanging in one round room, being able to sit and enjoy them all together is magical.
