Unicorn

The Unicorn is a mythical white horse or pony with a single horn. Unicorns were a symbol of purity and innocence in European mythology. As legend had it, only a virgin girl could "capture" a Unicorn, and many Renaissance tapestries and paintings show the Unicorn with its head on the lap of a maiden. As a symbol of purity, Unicorns have been shown with the Virgin Mary, Her protector, and protector and companion of all maidens.
