Virgin & Unicorn

This piece was based on miniatures from the fifteenth century. It was said that the only person who could approach a unicorn, was a true virgin. The white lillies being held by the girl are a symbol of her purity. This style of illumination is called International Gothic.

Watercolours and ink on parchment.
