In the Beginning

Acrylic and thread on leatherette (45x60cm)

After a visit to Stirling Castle, I was inspired to make a series of contemporary paintings based on the Christian narratives of the renowned Hunt of the Unicorn tapestries.

“In the Beginning” echoes the scene in the first panel of the tapestries where the hunters enter the woods in search of the mystical unicorn, a creature representing Christ.
