Buying furniture for your home is one thing, but searching for decor, particularly art, is quite another. First of all, there’s so much out there to sift through—and that’s not including all the thrift stores and art galleries you can check out in person. Then there’s the whole part of deciding what you want your aesthetic to be. Modern and vibrant? Traditional and subdued? Gallery wall or one large statement piece? The options are endless.

We’ve written plenty about buying art online, and have a few go-to places that never fail to offer up gorgeous, unique, and usually budget-friendly art of all types. But there’s one place we’ve never really considered before: Walmart. Turns out, Walmart carries tons of artwork from, one of the biggest online marketplaces for art out there. Thanks to that connection, the art on Walmart is way more interesting than you’d expect from a major retailer. We rounded up some of our favorites below that are worth checking out.

The Unicorn in Captivity Canvas Print

The famous illustration from the Middle Ages is available in a stretched canvas print for just $20. It’s a great piece to anchor a gallery wall, but definitely stands out on its own, especially when placed on a contrasting colorful wall.
