It is not often you get the chance to view meticulously preserved tapestries that are over 500 years old in person. However if you can make your way to the Art Gallery of NSW from the 10th of Feb to the 24th of June you can view 6 divine tapestries as part of the 'The Lady and the Unicorn' exhibit currently visiting from their normal home in France.
