Unicorns weren’t always so sweet, you know. The unicorns of the Old Testament were wild, untamable mountain beasts of ferocious power. In Ancient Greece, they were described as so swift of hoof that no creature alive could catch them.
One thing is certain, though, unicorns always were and always will be magical. In Japan, unicorns dispense one-horned mystic justice, hunting down and punishing criminals. In China, gentle unicorns are omens of good fortune. In the West, unicorns dominated the legends of the Middle Ages with their uncanny abilities to manifest miraculous healing and true love. In their mystery and majesty, unicorns have come to occupy a respected place in the royal crests of kings from the UK to Hungary and beyond.
Unicorns may have faded into mere fables today, but they still have the power to bewitch the young, and young at heart everywhere. Now, the magic doesn’t have to go away. Bring home your own private unicorn to magically brighten up the room of your little princess or prince.
