The Mystical Unicorn
~Legend of the Unicorn~

The scene also highlights another legend concerning the
In the tapestry, various wild animals wait by a stream

According to legend, the unicorn was a fearless animal,
If I could fly, I would be a unicorn.
I would be living in the clouds,
Butterflies surrounding me.
Flying in the breeze is the thing for me.
I could visit the sparkling sun

"To this day, it is said, malicious animals poison this water
after sundown, so that none can thereupon drink it.
But early in the morning, as soon as the sun rises, a
unicorn comes out of the ocean, dips his horn into the
water to expel the venom from it so that the other
animals may drink thereof during the day.
This is as I describe it. I saw it with my own eyes."
Johannes van Hesse of Utrecht; 1389
"Now I will believe that there are unicorns..."
William Shakespeare; The Tempest
"'Do you know, I always thought unicorns were
monsters, too? I never saw one alive before!'
'Well, now that we have seen each other,' said
the unicorn, 'if you'll believe in me,
I'll believe in you.'
Lewis Carroll; Through the Looking Glass
