This Belgian tapestry is the seventh tapestry in the tapestries of the unicorn series. The Unicorn in Captivity is the last in a series of seven in the collection of medieval art housed at The Cloisters. Together they illustrate the unicorn myth, which was rich with symbolism. No hunter could capture the unicorn without the aid of a maiden, to whom the beast would willingly surrender. The background color of this tapestry is a deep green.
