Unicorns have been a part of many cultures since early antiquity: In ancient Greece, European folklore, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and even, according to some translations, the Bible.
In various places at various times it has been a symbol of purity, grace, and of faithful marriage. It was commonly believed that a unicorn could be captured only by a virgin. Unicorns have appeared on many heraldic coats or arms, tapestries, in statuary and other artwork and in movies, fairy tales and literature.
Even today, the word 'unicorn' has come to be a slang term meaning a desirable but unattainable person.
This is a tiny (and attainable) unicorn, barely 1/2 inch from tip of horn to tail. It's done as a silhouette with a simplicity and minimum of detail that helps keep it in the mysterious realm of myth.
