Unicorns and rainbows are on trend right now, The elusive unicorn from medieval legend has been making a comeback. Once only found in enchanted forests, unicorns have been popping up in social media with shimmering unicorn-themed food and drinks;  Gypsy Spoonful has brought Unicorns into the limelight~ and now you can find all your favorite unicorns right here!

Click on the pictures to see the listings, spoon them (what’s that? : Spoonage)  and save them for later, or  buy them now. From digital embroidery designs, to necklaces, clothing, keychains, hairbows, toys, and other accessories, Gypsy Spoonful is your unicorn headquarters!

  

Here are some things about unicorns you may NOT know…

  • Unicorns are described as a beast with a single, spiraling horn coming from the forehead of the creature.
  • The first known depiction of a unicorn—found in the Lascaux Caves of modern-day France—dates to around 15,000 BC! Or so people thought, until they realized that the so-called Lascaux unicorn had two horns, drawn confusingly close together.

 

  • The unicorn is thought to hold the power to divine truth and will pierce the heart of a liar with its horn AND According to Jewish legend, the unicorn can easily kill an elephant, a testament to its immense power and strength.
  • Gypsy Spoonful currently has 30 listings with the word “Unicorn” in the titles, these awesome handmade products are made by designers located in the United States~handmade items are the best quality you can find, anywhere.

 

  • Purity: It is believed that the unicorn is attracted to purity and innocence, giving rise to the legend of the virgin and the unicorn. According to this ancient legend, only a virgin sitting naked under a tree holds the power to capture a unicorn. Seeing her beauty and pureness, the unicorn reportedly will venture close and lay down beside the virgin placing his head in her lap, where the hunter can then kill or capture him.

  

  • Untamable: It is said that even if the unicorn is captured, it can never be tamed. Unicorns are earthbound and do not have wings. If a unicorn and a Pegasus (a flying horse) mate, the babies may become flying unicorns.
  • They are difficult to catch (not unlike some horses who don’t like to be caught) and in many myths, can only be tamed by young maidens (more specifically, virgins!)  They are a symbol of ferociousness, freedom, power and speed and appear on many coats of arms and emblems.

 

  • In his travels, Marco Polo believed he stumbled across unicorns. He wrote, “They are very ugly brutes to look at. They are not at all such as we describe unicorns.” (pssst….That’s because they were actually rhinoceroses!!)
  • At its height, “unicorn horn” was literally worth 10 times its weight in gold. In 1560, German merchants sold a unicorn horn for an astronomical 90,000 scudi—then about £18,000—to the pope. Pharmacies in London sold powdered unicorn horn as late as 1741.
  • There are seven famous Gothic tapestries depicting the hunt and capture of unicorns

  • The King James version of the Old Testament contains nine references to unicorns, thanks to a mistranslation of the Hebrew word re’em. The original word was likely the Assyrian rimu (auroch), an extinct species of wild ox.
  • A unicorn’s horn, and the substance it’s made from, is called alicorn. It’s long been believed that alicorn has magical properties capable of healing wounds, neutralizing poison and purifying stagnant water

  • Several unicorn skeletons have been discovered, but all have also been discovered fakes. In the 1600s, a German Scientist and Inventor Otto Von Guericke created a fake unicorn skeleton with bones locals found in a cave, and a sketch based on the model was even included in a book on natural history written in the 1700s.
  • Unicorns are also often depicted as having cloven hooves like cattle, deer or goats. So while the rest of their bodies may be horse-like, they have the hooves of a biungulate, not the ungulate (single-toed) hooves of a horse. They are often depicted with similar coat colors to horses, but most often they are described as being white.

  • Unicorns have been attributed with many magical qualities. Unicorn tears and blood are said to be healing. Powder of unicorn horn is said to be an antidote for poison and Harry Potter’s wand contained a strand of unicorn tail hair.
  • Unicorns can be any color, from jet-black and brown to dazzling gold, brilliant red or pure white. Anyone who touches a pure white unicorn will find happiness and joy for his entire life.

  • One of the principal characters in the book Remarkable Creatures, by Tracy Chevalier is based on the life of Mary Anning. Mary Anning collected fossils and but didn’t understand what the fossilized creatures she was collecting were. One fossil, the nautilus, that we now know are cephalopods were thought to be coiled snakes. However, straight cephalopod shells were also found, and many thought these were unicorn horns back in the day
