Unicorn Heraldic Supporter
The traditional unicorn has the body of horse, a billy-goats beard, a lion's tail, and cloven hooves. The pagan interpretation of the unicorn focuses on the medieval lore of lovers, lured and betrayed to their death. Christian writings interpret the unicorn and its gentle surrender to death as the Passion of Christ. The unicorn has long been adopted as a symbol of Christ by Christian writers. The original myths refer to a beast with one horn that can only be tamed by a virgin; subsequently, Christian scholars translated this into an allegory for Christ's relationship with the Virgin Mary.

This unicorn is posed as a supporter a beast used in heraldry to support the shield in a coat of arms. The design characteristics below describe one unicorn. The price is for a set of two unicorns (facing left and right).
