This is a print of my original work. I scan my drawings at home and print them in high-quality on glossy paper at 8×10 inches. Each print is then matted to 11×14 inches and is ready to pop into a standard picture frame and hung on a wall. All of my prints are shipped boarded and bagged with sustainable, recycled packaging that is attached to a foam board and shipped in a poly mailer. The watermark from the second image in this listing will NOT appear on your print and is only to protect my work from internet theft.
This unicorn was inspired by the design from The Last Unicorn, which is set in a fictionalized version of England. This is why I chose a map of the United Kingdom to illustrate this beautiful running unicorn on!
In European folklore, the unicorn is often depicted as a white horse-like or goat-like animal with a long horn and cloven hooves (sometimes a goat’s beard). In the Middle Ages and Renaissance, it was commonly described as an extremely wild woodland creature, a symbol of purity and grace, which could be captured only by a virgin. In the encyclopedias, its horn was said to have the power to render poisoned water potable and to heal sickness. In medieval and Renaissance times, the tusk of the narwhal was sometimes sold as unicorn horn.
