“La dame à la licorne” (or “The Lady and the Unicorn”) is a very cool set of six tapestries that can be seen at the Musée de Cluny, France’s national museum for the Middle Ages, which is situated in Paris.

Five of the tapestries depict the five senses – taste, hearing, sight, smell and touch, while the sixth displays the words “À mon seul désir”. The tapestry’s meaning is obscure, but has been interpreted as representing love or understanding.
