Stories and art depicting unicorns goes way back and is part of many cultures history, in Asia the unicorn is mentioned in 2700bc it is described with the same characteristics as many other cultures and even how the unicorn is portrayed as today, gentle, pure, elusive and majestic. It’s said in Asian folklore that Confucius was the last person to ever see a unicorn alive.
In Christianity, the unicorn according to art historians was a symbol of Christ and was mentioned in the bible 8 times
The unicorn in European tales and art goes back thousands of years and is also very similar to descriptions of unicorns all over the world, being pure, having a long spiraled horn, lives in the forest away from people and usually has a white coat.
There are some historians who believe that unicorns are not just the mystical creature we think of today but an extinct animal that was once real, this comes from ancient paintings from all over the world and stories told of the elusive unicorn.
These historians believe that humans hunted, killed and wiped out the entire population of unicorns.
