The remaining sixth sense, explained only by the inscription "À mon seul désir" (To my only desire), has inspired countless theories. Without excluding a possible meaning in the register of courtly love, it could be a reference to free will: the woman with her decorative headdress and refined clothing, renouncing temporal pleasures.
"My only desire". The famous expression closes the series of no less famous Lady and the Unicorn tapestries . It resonates like a romantic echo, floating over the five centuries which separate us from the anonymous hands which, patiently, weaved these threads which we have continued to admire ever since.
