The Unicorn Tapestries, on permanent exhibition at the Cloisters Museum of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, are one of New York City's jewels. Vancouver yacht maker and carver Ivan Wilson was asked to design a cane that prominently displayed the Unicorn. The handle of the cane depicts a unicorn's head and the titles of the various tapestries in the set are indicated along the shaft.
