The Lady and the Unicorn (Sight)  I  Stephen Linsteadt

The Lady and the Unicorn (Sight), oil on canvas, 120 x 120 cm, 2023 - $3200

Inspired by the six tapestries in the Musee de Cluny. They were created around 1500 and purportedly represent the five senses. In "Sight" the Lady is holding a mirror up to a Unicorn, who sees itself in the reflection. It may represent the mirror of consciousness and the vision of our soul. On the other hand, it may be about not seeing or the mirror of forgetting that we are part of a larger field of consciousness.
