Mythical or Magical the Crowned Princes of Horses
It’s a common error to refer to unicorns as “mythical” creatures, since they actually appeared in Greek natural histories, rather than mythology. Unicorns were thought to be very real, albeit well–hidden. They are possibly the purest symbolic essence of the cult of the “Majestic Horse,” usually being all white and reputedly only being in danger of being captured by virgin females. Whatever their magical origin and possible reality, they have long been captivating creatures in artists’ imaginations.
