THE UNICORN'S MAIDEN.. by chryssalis THE UNICORN'S MAIDEN.. by chryssalis

:heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:

The unicorn is a legendary animal,an extremely wild woodland creature,
a symbol of purity and grace, which could only be captured by a virgin..
"The unicorn, through its intemperance and not knowing how to control itself,
for the love it bears to fair maidens forgets its ferocity and wildness;
and laying aside all fear it will go up to a seated damsel and go to sleep in her lap,
and thus the hunters take it"..(Leonardo da Vinci)




..She drops the bridle, jumps to her feet
Runs to the unicorn, leaps on its back
So gently, it lets her, then races into
The emerald forest
Away from the bewildered archers
In the brush.

The unicorn’s maiden and the unicorn go
To peaceful freedom
For both are no longer cultured sculptures
But wild beauty of legend told
The unicorn and its maiden.

--Danielle Higgins

each and every one of you..
Thanks for watching my work!:heart:



Can she enslave him?
He surrenders his spirit
to her purity.

Does he then become her pet,
is he her beast of burden? by :iconalecbell: [link]
