The Slaughter

Acrylic and thread on leatherette (45x70cm)

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.

The betrayal leads to the unicorn’s death, this painting, “The Slaughter” refers to the sixth panel in the series where the creature has been slain and his body and removed horn brought to the castle.
