    Seated Unicorn


    Handmade representation of a seated unicorn which symbolizes purity and sincerity. According to the ancient Greek mythology, the unicorns were wild animals in the form of a horse with a horn on the forehead. They were considered very proud creatures to be captured alive.

    They are mentioned by the Greek historian and writer, Ctesias, in his work "Persica" (5th-4th century BC). Based on that work, the unicorn had a white body and a red head with dark blue eyes from which begun a horn with a white base, black middle and a red top. Most importantly, the unicorn was a symbol of the moon, and a creature which belonged to goddess Artemis, since she was the goddess of the moon and hunting.
