Inspired by The Lady and The Unicorn Tapestry

The Unicorn Drop Earrings represent the relationship between the natural and mythical worlds, which were considered the same during Medieval times. The unicorn was seen as a symbol of purity and grace and its horn was believed to heal sickness. However, it was also said to be a wild beast or goat that could only be tamed by a virgin woman. This lead to the image of a woman and a unicorn appearing in countless amounts of religious art, depicting the relationship between Christ and the Virgin Mary. This idea of taming can be seen in the “sight” tapestry as the unicorn sits in front of the lady looking into the mirror she hold.
