About this deal

A New Orleans journalist, Tracey Anne Duncan, described her connection to unicorn when she watched The Last Unicorn as a child. In November 2012 the History Institute of the DPRK Academy of Social Sciences, as well as the Korea News Service, reported that the Kiringul had been found, which is associated with a kirin ridden by King Dongmyeong of Goguryeo.

Of course, folklore fans will know that lions and unicorns have always been enemies, locked in a battle for the title of ‘king of beasts’. When a serpent poisons the lake where all the animals drink, only the unicorn has the power to save them.Certain noblemen such as the Earl of Kinnoull were given special permission to use the unicorn in their arms, as an augmentation of honour. 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. A footman (or metal trivet) in the parlour at the Georgian House has a unicorn as part of the decoration on its top.

The Danish physician Ole Worm determined in 1638 that the alleged alicorns were the tusks of narwhals. Unicorns in religious art largely disappeared after they were condemned by Molanus after the Council of Trent.The Council of Trent finally banned this somewhat over-elaborated, if charming, depiction, [30] partly on the grounds of realism, as no one now believed the unicorn to be a real animal. They have a head like a wild boar's… They spend their time by preference wallowing in mud and slime.
