"Lady and the Unicorn - Hearing" Scarf

The so-called "Dame à la Licorne" tapestry is a set of 6 pieces. 5 of these pieces illustrate the 5 senses, and the sixth is that of desire. Each is organized in the same way: on a background of "millefleurs", a young woman, richly dressed, poses surrounded by a lion on his right and a unicorn on the left.

The curtain of * Hearing * shows the Lady playing the portable organ, with her servant wielding the bellows. This organ is placed on an oriental carpet, whose pattern has inspired this stole.
