24in. x 18in. oil on stretched canvas. completed in 1985. This piece depicts my story of the creation of the Unicorn. The short version is... A nymph, not wanting the attentions of the ever pesky satyrs and centaurs, molded from the elements the first Unicorn to be her guardian. The creation worked so well that other nymphs did the same. This eventually caused the extinction of the satyre and centaurs. After the nympth's time on the surface of the world gave way to the time of humans and the nymphs no longer called on the unicorns, the unicorns found occasion to show themselves to the one creature most like their nymph creators... vergin female humans.
