“Dreams are the playground of unicorns.” – Unknown
The Unicorn trend might seem huge right now as you can see it in party themes, clothing, makeup, food and of course art & decor. But it is not a recent phenomenon at all. In fact unicorns are legendary creatures mentioned by the ancient Greeks and depicted in the seals found in the ruins of the Indus Valley Civilisation.
“Do you know, I always thought unicorns were fabulous monsters, too? I never saw one alive before!”
“Well, now that we have seen each other,” said the unicorn, “if you’ll believe in me, I’ll believe in you.”
– Lewis Carroll; Through the Looking Glass.
People have been believing in Unicorns since they started believing in magic. The horn is supposed to contain great magical powers & is capable of healing the sick. But most importantly, unicorns don’t just represent ethereal and mystical beauty. They are seen as a symbol of wisdom, strength and above all, a sign of being pure of heart & soul.
“The unicorn”, she said, “was a marvelous beast, shining with honor, wisdom and strength. Just to see him strengthened the soul.”
– Megan Lindholm; The Unicorn in the Maze
I recently celebrated my daughter’s sixth birthday. It was a unicorn themed party. I wanted to adorn the table with some gold unicorns which would also double as cute favors for the girls to take home at the end! I bought some small plastic unicorns from Amazon. They were white with manes of different colors. They looked extremely cheap and ugly. I bought some gold spray paint again from Amazon and set about spraying the unicorns till they were sparkling in the sunlight. The result was gorgeous as you can see in the picture above!
These gold unicorns made the table look even more beautiful and elegant! The girls were ecstatic to take one home at the end of the party. And as for me, I think I’m obsessed with these! I will be spray painting some more unicorns and incorporating them around my house in different decor because everything is better with a unicorn! 😉
