In what is probably the most magical exhibition ever, the Cloisters of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York is exhibiting works depicting unicorns.  Some of the most beautiful tapestries from the Middle Ages will be on view, and they are covered in unicorns.  Also, natural history books featuring the various kinds of unicorns, sculptures, illustrations and more round out the exhibition that ranges from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance. Exhibition on view until August 18th.

Essentially it’s ancient sqee-central.
