Celtic Tribal Winged Unicorn by MPFitzpatrick Celtic Tribal Winged Unicorn by MPFitzpatrick
Another of my Celtic/Tribal pieces. A winged unicorn. What are these things called again? Alicorn?
Products with this image are available from my Cafe Press store

EDIT: apparently, the word is allicorn, with 2 'l's. Thanks Google!

An allicorn is the horn of a unicorn, a winged horse is called a unikiss of a unipeg. It's very pretty.

Amazing Art!!!! <3

An alicorn is:

-Usually, the horn of a unicorn, or the material of which the horn is made.

-A modern, but incorrect usage of the word alicorn is to refer to a winged unicorn. A pterippus (also called a pegasus after the original winged horse Pegasus) who are given horns are a modern notion and have no mythological counterparts.

-The alicorn was thought to cure many diseases and have the ability to detect poisons. Many Phycisians would make "cures" and sell them.

-Many cups were made from "alicorn" for kings and given as a gift.

Hey, I just thought of something, this would make a VERY PRETTY tattoo design. But probably not for me, as I dunno if I'll ever actually get one lol. Still, very nice art anyway. ^_^

So! Pretty!
I've been trying to do a firebird with wings something like that -- feathers turning into flames -- for *years* now. It never works. And the mane! And the horn!
*drooling*

Ok, for artist comments rather than fangirl comments: I'm doubly impressed because it's so hard to take a theme many people have worked on, and turn it into something new and striking, and you really have. Go you :)

You know, I've been struggling with the firebird/pheonix idea for a while too. Idea looks great in my head. Doesn't so well on paper yet. SIgh...

Beautiful display of line and form!
I love the intricate negative areas in the design, and the way that the whole image has a movement of it's own. The neck area reminds me of some of the work on Greek urns.

And of course, that crazy braided mane! Keep up the fine work!! :D
