The unicorn gazes at the stained glass windows with awe by Laurie Miller Hornik.
The hand-drawn unicorn in the bottom left corner is gazing up at the stained glass windows (a rose window with three long windows) and, even though she is a magical creature, she is in awe of the wonder of the stained glass. The windows are created from glass tiles. The stone work facade is a combination of found and hand-painted paper.

Artist Bio: I’ve been creating mixed media collages of one kind or another for most of my life. I’ve always been interested in how it’s possible to take bits of paper from different places and arrange them into something new. It feels like a metaphor for what we do all the time--assembling our different thoughts and feelings and experiences into the life we create each day.
My undergraduate degree is from Harvard, where I studied Medieval History and Literature, mostly because I was obsessed with the Unicorn Tapestries at the Cloisters. While my major has ended up being exactly as useful as I had expected, my collages have given me a new outlet to explore medieval tapestry. Many of my collages borrow subject matter, color palette, and even the act of weaving from these tapestries.
