15th Century Tapestry Copied in Lite Brite



The Lady and the Unicorn is a 15th Century Flemish tapestry, often said to be one of the greatest works of medieval European art. Artist Joey Syta copied the work in Lite Brite -- an illuminated toy popular in the United States since its introduction in the 1960s. It's called My Only Desire and is composed of 55,000 pegs.
