The Unicorn is a mythical beast. Mythical beasts are creatures born of the imagination. This particular unicorn was inspired by a series of unicorn tapestries, produced in the Netherlands around the year 1500. All show a unicorn surrounded by so called Millefleurs (realistic flora and fauna). They are now housed in The Cloisters in New York. They are shrouded in mystery even today. Medieval people believed that unicorns did exist. They attached a lot of Christian metaphors to the creature (such as 'the one horn is a symbol for the only begotten son of God' and many other myths about virgins).
