Portiere Lion Tapestry
The lion is a symbol of bravery, strength, royalty and power. The very finest tapestries woven during the Medieval ages were of the lion, the unicorn and the fair maiden.
Six tapestries make up The Lady and the Unicorn series, depicting the five senses, and the sixth sense (desire). The Portiere Lion tapestry wall hanging comes from the sense of Taste.
