The Cloisters is an old monastery in New York that has become a museum showcasing art and architecture from medieval European times. When I visited the museum just a few days ago, I was in awe. It was like walking through a mysterious castle where faeries could hide in the walls and unicorns could prance through the gardens.

One of the most entrancing parts of the Cloisters was the unicorn tapestry room. The unicorns tapestries are original pieces of woven artwork from medieval european times, most likely hung in the castle. No one knows who the artist is, nor does anyone know why they depict these unicorns or what they mean.

It was very dark in the room, but I brought back some pictures to show http://i.imgur.com/gHxkm6c.gif

This is a narwhal tusk, thought to have been the magic horn of a unicorn in medieval Europe.

Oh my Godmother, thank you so much for sharing your photos Setorin. I have always loved those first few ever since I was a little girl and they were featured in the beginning of The Last Unicorn. What a magical experience it must of been to get to see all of that and walk those halls.

Yes, they're exactly the ones used in the movie! http://i.imgur.com/gHxkm6c.gif

Even through it has nearly been a year since my trip, looking back at these I remember just how awe-inspiring it was.

That was what I had thought. Hard to forget the intro to that movie.
