Naming Your Unicorn
There are many fun ways to name a unicorn. You can choose names that will make your child giggle or remind them of a favorite past time. You can also just pick random names from your child’s dictionary. Have them open a page, close their eyes and point to a word. Do that again for the second part of the name. You might have your kids really rolling on the floor!
The earliest chatter of this beautiful beast was (c.400 BC). Historian writer Ctesias wrote about a single-horned creature that he described as a white horse with a purple head. It had blue eyes and on its forehead was a single horn that was colored black, red and white.
Unicorn means ‘one horn’. The horn is centered on its forehead and is long and straight. It has a spiral impression from the base of the horn to the pointy end. If anyone was lucky enough to find a piece of the horn in the dark forest, it is said that they would feel the magic come over them and be healed of all sickness or ailments.
This mythical creature looks like a cross between a deer and a horse. It has a lion-like tail with cloven hooves (meaning it has a split down the middle of the hoof). The unicorn has healing powers in his tears and blood with magical powder in its horn to be used as protection on his master if enemies are near.
Images of the unicorn were also present during the Medieval Ages. The Church allowed many artists to depict the unicorn the way the artists seemed fit and could be used on a variety of mediums as well without getting prosecuted. During this time, many variations of it were created.
Some of the artist’s work was transmitted over into tapestry weaving. This particular medium was made out of wool, warp, silk, and silver. This time they made sure to make the unicorn the focal point. At the Metropolitan Museum of Art, you will find a set of 7 unicorn tapestries dating back from 1495-1505. Is it magic of the unicorn that these tapestries survived for all of these years?
