fresco, probably by Domenico Zampieri, c. 1602 (Palazzo Farnese, Rome)
It was believed that a Unicorn's strength was in its horn and also that the horn carried magical and healing medicine.
I just finished reading THE SHADOW OF THE UNICORN II: THE DECEPTION, the second book in a series for children by Suzanne de Montigny. Lovely story about Unicorns. So, I believe. Why not? Many animals have become extinct through the years. Unicorns might be one of them.
What do you think?
