Artist's description:

In his book ‘Lore of The Unicorn’, Odell Shepard describes the Unicorn as being interesting ‘almost entirely as a denizen of “The Monarch Thought’s Dominion”’ i.e. as a creation of man’s imagination.

There are many animals caught up in the unicorn legend, which have been commingled over time to produce various descriptions of the mysterious beast. These include the rhinoceros, the ibex, goat, ox, narwhal, okapi, and even the orangutan! The story of the unicorn has been entwined with those of real animals, most just as strange and fascinating themselves, and reveal just as much about us and our engagement with the natural word, as they do about the unicorn itself. Here are a few of them represented in this print.

Each of these limited edition screen prints have been individually hand coloured with water colours, alluding to traditional natural history illustrations to illustrate a very unscientific history of nature.

Materials used:

Black Out Line Screen Printed Onto Hahnemuhle 300gsm Etching Paper, Then Hand Coloured With Water Colours
