Five of the tapestries are interpreted as depicting the five senses: taste, hearing, sight, smell, and touch and a sixth one named desire that is believed to mean representing love or understanding. Each of the six tapestries depicts a noble lady with the unicorn on her left and a lion on her right and some include a monkey in the scene.
