Tapestry is a form of textile art, woven on a vertical loom. A unicorn (from Latin unus 'one' and cornu 'horn') is a mythological creature. The modern popular image of the unicorn is sometimes that of a horse differing only in the horn on its forehead. The Lady and the Unicorn (French: La Dame à la licorne) is the modern title given to a series of six tapestries woven in Flanders of wool and silk, from designs ( cartoons ) drawn in Paris in the late fifteenth century, The suite is often considered one of the greatest works of art of the Middle Ages in Europe. Five of the tapestries are commonly interpreted as depicting the five senses - taste, hearing, sight, smell, and touch.
