this is an old tapestry from the middle ages that you can see in the cloisters in the north of manhatten, nyc. these cloisters are very bizarre cloisters. they were once real cloisters from the 13th century in italy and the americans took each and every stone and just transferred the entire site from italy to manhatten. even the garden.
this little tapestry shows the hunted and trapped unicorn from a well known fable i don´t know.
tapestries. these little carpets on walls, sewed with needles and threads by crafty little hands. they also somehow seem a little eerie. this ambivalence of something dark and heavy and hiding things behind it like a curtain, meticulously sewn together in so many days and nights, lovely and vain, but somehow a little morbid.
