How new are unicorns?
How new are unicorns? What IS a unicorn? I get asked that sometimes and it's a bit tricky to answer. "Unicorns are often described as symbols of freedom, magic, purity, innocence and healing. In the modern world, unicorns often also represent positivity, joy, hope, pride and diversity." Here at Unicorn Kisses, we think they represent goodness and pure love.
The roots of the unicorn myth date back at least as far as 400 BCE, when the Greek historian Ctesias first documented a unicorn-like animal in his writings on the region of India. But what if one day, elephants, wolves and pelicans are talked about and all the pictures and photos of them are lost? People might think they couldn't have been real and then say they were just a myth.
Maybe the unicorn from ancient myths is 'telling us'
to take good care of our planet and to protect our
precious wildlife so that they will remain with us
on our beautiful planet.
