A pinch more magic - Unicorn Horns

I don't think anything is more magical or wonderful than a unicorn. I used to believe in unicorns when I was little and looked for them in the copse behind my house. I loved two films which featured unicorns (and which made me decide to have a career in the film industry!) and they were 'Legend' (1985) and 'The Last Unicorn' (1982). The unicorns were as stunning as the ones in the MediƦval tapestry series 'The Hunt of the Unicorn' (made between 1495–1505) except in the film 'Legend' the unicorns didn't have the traditional lion's tail, but a horse's tail instead. Nevermind.

Now unicorn horns are obviously an essential magic to have to hand in the witch / wizard or sorcerer's spellroom. Handy for stirring spells and whatnot. So here are some 1:12 (one inch) scale unicorn horns (also available in 1:24 - half inch scale).

They have a hint of gold about them. Very carefully handmade without the use of molds and they also glow in the dark.

They are available at my online shop here

Scroll past my Unicorn Horn pictures and see images of the references I made above.

'The Hunt of the Unicorn' (1495–1505) - this is one of the 7 tapestries in the series showing the unicorn captured.

  1. Beautiful unicorn horns! I loved the idea when I was little that there was such a magical creature as an unicorn. But I found it just as magical when I learned there was really a creature with such a horn..the narwhal! :-)
