Nearly 35 years ago, the timeless book The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle was turned into an animated movie. With music by America, voices by Jeff Bridges, Mia Farrow, Christopher Lee, Angela Lansbury, Alan Arkin, and Tammy Grimes, and the immense talent of the animators and creatives who would later form Studio Ghibli, The Last Unicorn was an incredible film that gripped the minds and hearts of all who grew up with it. Though the movie was released decades ago, the music and iconic scenes and lines still echo through our minds. Sadly, there were only a small handful of things ever made for The Last Unicorn, many of them incredibly rare and hard to come by nowadays. We’re here to change that! Having secured the license to make merchandise for The Last Unicorn, we’re crafting all kinds of new items for our favorite fantasy.
A recreation of the tapestry of the opening credits scene of The Last Unicorn, this tapestry is a fully woven (not printed) textile piece and makes for an excellent wall hanging, a throw for a couch, or even as a blanket to snuggle up in. Measuring 54″ x 90″ (4.5 ft x 7.5 ft, or 1.4m x 2.3 meters) and made of 100% cotton, the scene depicts the Unicorn in her forest in a recreation of the classic style of medieval European tapestries and draws inspirations from the Unicorn tapestries of the early 1500s, now residing in The Cloisters in New York. The Unicorn rears up near a fountain in her forest, nearby to a Hart, a pair of lions, and other woodland creatures, with Eagle watches over the scene, and a castle in the background set amidst a transition to nightfall. This iconic piece is entirely made in the USA and is a fabulous celebration of the beloved classic film, and is easy to hang with nails or tacks, or can easily be modified to sew or attach a pocket or loops onto the back for traditional hanging (rod not included).
So if you need a medieval style tapestry of The Last Unicorn, for laughs, for luck, or to brave the unknown, don’t miss this beautiful recreation of one of the most iconic scenes of The Last Unicorn!
