I found an 'Easter Egg' on the PG Unicorn

Like the title suggests, while working on my PG Unicorn I stumbled across an 'Easter Egg'. This little treat was hidden among the official water slide decal sets included with the Full Armor and Final Battle versions of the PG Unicorn.

Just below the large unicorn emblem on the shield features and just above the line of text 'RX-0 UNICORN GUNDAM'; there is a wispy line of text barely .2 mm high. Originally, I assumed that this text was just 'Lorem Ipsum' filler... but upon closer inspection the text reads: 'A MON SEUL DESIR'.

When translated to English this phrase means 'My only desire'. Syam Vist directly quotes this line nearing the climax of Gundam Unicorn Episode 7 'Over the Rainbow'.

This is also a reference to the silk and woolen tapestry Lady and the Unicorn: À Mon Seul Desir. This is the same tapestry featured in the Vist Foundation during the events of the first episode of the Gundam Unicorn OVA. The phrase is incorporated into the design of the tapestry and is situated on the tent just above the head of the lady.

For those interested, the tapestry is one of six in a set of real life pieces of art. Originally created around 1500 the tapestries are currently on display at the Musée national du Moyen Âge in Paris France.
