Detail of ‘The Lady and the Unicorn tapestry (1420) Maltese dog on her skirt,  Here we have the little white Jewel again in another Tapestry of the set of medieval tapestries of "The Lady and the Unicorn" in the Cluny in Paris....this time he is sitting on his Mommies skirt because he is too refined to sit on common earth, isn't it ? :-))

Definitely collected unicorn figurines between the ages of six and twelve.  They're probably still in a box somewhere.  Doesn't this one look coy and frisky?

#MetKids Fun Fact: Some people in the Middle Ages believed that unicorns were real animals. They also thought that you could make poisoned water or wine safe to drink by touching it with a unicorn's horn. | The Unicorn in Captivity (from the Unicorn Tapestries), 1495–1505.
