The Completion of the Stirling Tapestries

Stirling Castle in Scotland has a new addition this summer: a handmade tapestry that serves as a replica of what may have hung in the royal halls during James V's reign. 

The tapestry is the final piece in a series of seven, known as The Mystic Hunt Of The Unicorn. It took 14 years and 18 weavers to complete.

Commissioned by Historic Scotland in 2001, the project aims to restore the palace's interior to how it may have looked in the 1500s. During that time, James V had hundreds of tapestries, with one particular set focusing on "the historie of the unicorne."
