Here's a couple of pages from a work in progress, Unicorn Hunt. This is the only creature I plan to revisit in any form, but I wanted to do a little more with the unicorn. Unicorns are so interesting because, at least in the west, they have been used to represent male power and sex, but also as a metaphor for Christ, and
you see both of those in the classic Unicorn Series tapestries at the Cloisters in Inwood, NYC. You have the seductive element and the purity/sacrifice element.
I just watched Ingmar Bergman's "Virgin Spring", and I found the Pagan element really compelling, this sort of barbaric sexuality, in contrast with the primitive Christian humaneness. Have you ever seen Wes Craven's "Last House on the Left"? I don't know if he did it on purpose, but it is almost exactly the same plot as "Virgin Spring", but the murderers are bloodthirsty
Anyhow, so I wanted to throw a Pagan view up against the Christian unicorn allegory.
