I visited the six marvelous late medieval tapestries in the Musėe national du Moyen Âge when I was last in Paris. Five tapestries depict the senses and an additional tapestry has an obscure meaning. My favorite is the tapestry depicting sight. The lady holds a mirror to the unicorn and is clearly bored with his self-admiration. You can imagine her rolling her eyes.

Here’s a great YouTube about the tapestries:

About medievalphyllis

I love history and I love writing. I've been working on an historical novel about a medieval viscountess, Ermengarde of Narbonne since 2009. It has been quite a journey and the journey isn't over. Previously I written 6 historical novels for kids, but this is a new challenge.
