Welcome to my Unicorn Gallery. 20 Unicorn drawings and cartoons from £20 as part of my 20-20 Vision project, drawing a weird and challenging year to an end. I expected everyone to be talking about 2020 vision this year not viruses, so thought I would create a 20-20 vision personal art project and challenge to keep moving forward smiling.
A bit about unicorns…
The unicorn, a mythological horse found in antiquity, is the symbol of Scotland, chosen as the beast powerful enough to stand up to the English lion.
In Medieval times unicorns were believed to heal sickness but the wild woodland unicorn could only be captured by a virgin.
The virgin myth is thought to represent the Virgin Mary and the belief that the healing power of the unicorn was associated with miracles and thus represented Christ.
Magical healing ‘Alicorn’ powder made from the tusks of unicorns was sold in Europe as late as 1741. Unicorn horn (narwhale horn) was an extremely precious commodity.
It would be easy to laugh at this if it wasn’t for the fact that the Chinese sickeningly still use endangered rhinoceros horn for medicine. Bite your own finger nails for all the good rhino horn is going to do to cure you!
I started drawing unicorns to illustrate a daft Alexander Technique inspired poem I wrote for the children I was teaching the Alexander Technique at The Edinburgh School of Music. Well one unicorn led to another…
Here are twenty fun original cartoons and drawings of the wonderful mythical unicorn. The third of my 20 galleries, links at end of post. Prices for original drawings from £20. I think some of these would look wonderful in a child’s bedroom.
To buy just email me at kirstenfharris@btopenworld or PM me via Facebook messenger on my page Kirsten Harris Art.
I hope you enjoy my unicorn gallery…
