Tapisserie - Narcisse (1500)
(taille reelle)

Le personnage de Narcisse du Roman de la Rose a pu être à l'origine de la tapisserie de Boston.
Selon Guy Delmarcel, cette tapisserie de laine et de soie, de dimensions moyennes (2m80 sur 3m10), aurait appartenu à un ensemble consacrée au Roman de la Rose et Anne de Bretagne en possédait un exemplaire en quatre pièces.

anonyme - The Unicorn in Captivity (from the Unicorn Tapestries) (1500)
(taille reelle)

The seven individual hangings known as "The Unicorn Tapestries," are among the most beautiful and complex works of art from the late Middle Ages that survive. Luxuriously woven in fine wool and silk with silver and gilded threads, the tapestries vividly depict scenes associated with a hunt for the elusive, magical unicorn. "The Unicorn in Captivity" may have been created as a single image rather than part of a series. In this instance, the unicorn probably represents the beloved tamed. He is tethered to a tree and constrained by a fence, but the chain is not secure and the fence is low enough to leap over: The unicorn could escape if he wished. Clearly, however, his confinement is a happy one, to which the ripe, seed-laden pomegranates in the tree—a medieval symbol of fertility and marriage—testify. The red stains on his flank do not appear to be blood, as there are no visible wounds like those in the hunting series; rather, they represent juice dripping from bursting pomegranates above. Many of the other plants represented here, such as wild orchid, bistort, and thistle, echo this theme of marriage and procreation: they were acclaimed in the Middle Ages as fertility aids for both men and women. Even the little frog, nestled among the violets at the lower right, was cited by medieval writers for its noisy mating.

Jean de Bruges - Tapisserie de l'Apocalypse - la Bete et la mer ()
(taille reelle)

« (13:1) Alors je vis surgir de la mer une Bête ayant sept têtes et dix cornes, sur ses cornes dix diadèmes, et sur ses têtes des titres blasphématoires. (2) La Bête que je vis ressemblait à une panthère, avec les pattes comme celles d’un ours et la gueule comme une gueule de lion ; et le Dragon lui transmit sa puissance et son trône et un pouvoir immense. »
