Nowadays the unicorn is depicted as a creature in the shape of a horse with a distinctive, long, spiraled horn on its forehead. Its graceful body is usually presented with silver-white fur and is of dazzling beauty. This shy and evercompassionate being avoids getting too close to humans by hiding in forests.
Unicorns symbolize goodness and purity and are mythical creatures that possess magical powers, can heal sickness and can protect against poisoning. Folklore depicts this being as one that is a talisman against evil: when a unicorn appears, the devil disappears.
In Europe and Western cultures, the unicorn is thus one of the most central symbols of purity and innocence. Even as far as Japan and China, this creature is known as a mark of goodness, so its appearance is always a positive omen.
The unicorn is a being of such beauty and fascination that myths have surrounded its existence for hundreds of years. At the same time, the pronounced and distinctive body of this creature exudes power and momentum.
