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.
