Unicorns... a little info about our magical friends

As it is clearly visible, our site is dedicated to everything Unicorn.

We love this magical creatures, but most of all we love what they represent. Across the centuries it has embodied different qualities, but to us, right now, Unicorn Magic is: freedom, inner beauty, sunshine and moonshine, creativity, inner peace and self confidence.

But this is what Unicorns mean to us. Let's see an outside perspective...

History

Historically, the Unicorn is a legendary animal that has been described since antiquity as a horse-like creature with a single large, pointed, spiraling horn projecting from its forehead. A symbol of purity and grace, it is said it could be captured only by a virgin. It is present in the mythology of basically every people in every corner of the world. From China, to Ancient Greece, to medieval Europe, up to our days.

Nowadays

Nowadays, in popular culture, the Unicorn is often used as a symbol of fantasy or rarity.

That girl/boy that you can't catch. Everything about her/him is so perfect (divine, if you will) getting with her/him is unfathomable. She/he is truly a blessing from God. Bumping into her/him on the sidewalk, holding a conversation… makes your day brighter… but you were probably dreaming. Anything beyond that - good luck. It takes time, effort, and a whole lot of persistency.

But never give up; unicorns are said to be "uncatchable”, but nothing is impossible if we really put our mind to it and we open our hearts to the unexpected.
