The Unicorn is a legendary creature that has been described from ancient times as a beast with a single large, pointed, spiral horn protruding from his forehead. The unicorn was represented in ancient stamps of the Indus Valley Civilization and was mentioned by the ancient Greeks in Tales of natural history by various writers, including Ctesias, Strabo, the youngest Pliny, and Aelian. The Bible also describes an animal, the re ‘ em, which some versions translate as a unicorn.
In European folklore, the unicorn is often depicted as a horse-like a white animal or a goat with a longhorn and cloven hooves (occasionally a goat beard). In the Middle Ages and Renaissance, he was commonly described as a wild creature of the forest, a symbol of purity and grace, which could only be captured by a virgin. In the encyclopedias, it was said that his horn had the power to drink poisonous water and heal the disease. In medieval times and Renaissance, the narwhal colk was occasionally sold as Unicorn horn.
