Silly Unicorns

Unicorns have a pretty silly image in popular culture at the moment.


Not as silly as those of us who like or believe in them though.


But at one time, unicorns were not silly figures of fun but serious images of purity and freedom.


More on those serious unicorns tomorrow.

Seems like someone made a typo a couple thousand years ago and it should be unihorn?

My secret (not so secret now) is to have a cat-unicorn with glass bat wings.

I had no idea they crapped rainbows. :D

That black cat looks seriously pissed off.

Birdie said...

No doubt the black cat has made someone pay. They are likely dead from a tragic fall down the stairs.

Leeanna said...

Dawna said...

I simply love Unicorns. I have a book that is a copy of a book that was supposedly written long, long ago by monks who were protecting what they believed to be a Unicorn's horn. The art work is beautiful and I love opening it now and then and flipping through the pages.

Yeah, unicorns have really made a come-back. Purity and freedom, huh? Interesting. The would could use a lot of both.

Be well, Debra.

Unicorns are well cool. I always wanted to be a Unicorn. I shall improvise and put a toilet plunger on my forehead.

YONKS said...

You mean some people have never seen them! Next you'll be telling us there is no Santa Claus!

Thanks for coming along on my trip.

Cats see things that we don't see. Our cat will suddenly take off from the couch and dash through the house - I am sure she is chasing fairies.
