"Unicorn in Captivity" Oversize Silk Scarf

The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Regular price $148.00

This impressive, large-scale silk scarf features the star of the Unicorn Tapestries, which are installed at the Cloisters in Washington Heights, NYC. These seven luxurious hangings from the Late Middle Ages/Early Renaissance depict the hunt for an elusive, magical unicorn.

The seventh tapestry, "The Unicorn in Captivity," shows the mythical creature loosely tethered to a tree and constrained by a low fence. Though he could escape, his confinement is apparently a happy one. With the fabled medieval animal at its center, this statement accessory in soft silk twill is ready to toss, tie, and wrap with style.
