Utopia of the Unicorn: The Hunt of the Unicorn Tapestries (Travel Photo Art #10) (Paperback)
From cute children's books to fairytale art, the unicorn is alive and well in the world today.
During the late Middle Ages, the hunt for the unicorn was considered a symbolic story about love. It has also been interpreted with Christian symbolism relating to the Passion of Christ. Today's viewers bring an entirely different context to the tapestries.
This mythical animal is considered to be magical in the most powerful of ways. The innocence and purity it represents through its beauty and its white coat captivate modern people. The unicorn's power resonates in a series of tapestries woven hundreds of years ago.
Explore these enigmatic weavings through an artist's interpretation with the full-color photos of Utopia of the Unicorn: The Hunt of the Unicorn Tapestries (a Travel Photo Art book).
