In one of the organizations that I worked for. My then immediate boss remarked that “an ideal work environment is a Unicorn.” I admit that back then I did not understand what he meant by that statement.
So, after that interaction with the boss. I researched that term to understand what he meant.
After doing a secondary research on Unicorns. I developed a fascination for these mystical creatures. Therefore, for once I agreed with that boss. He was right.
No work environment can have the purity and grace as a Unicorn.
Later, I left that organization. But I could never part with my new found love for that legendary creature. That is funny because I have never ever seen one. Also, there is zilch of a probability of ever seeing a Unicorn. So, whenever I see a representation of Unicorns, I cannot stop myself from staying agape.
The archaeology data from Indus Valley Civilization depicts Unicorns in their seals. An animal similar to Unicorn also finds a mention in the Bible.
But in today’s times, Unicorns have become a universal favorite. So, whenever I find a glimpse of that beautiful animal. I cannot help myself from talking about it.
That is why I came up with Unicorns inspired list of products that are handmade. These creatures from the folklore shower their charm on these items. Thus, the products end up looking unique and beautiful. Much like the Unicorns.

7. Taxidermy Unicorn
When it comes to objects made from animal bodies. I put in a lot of clauses before accepting them. Some of them include a big NO to the usage of endangered species for any sort of human consumption.
Also, there is a vehement NO to the use of animal skin/ fur for jackets/ hats or other accessories. In rarest of rare cases. I can use a bovine leather from a source which has approval from animal care bodies.
That is the reason I detest going to places that display Taxidermy as a sign of valor.
I recall while growing up my mother got a taxidermy eagle as a home decor display object. That bird of Jove scared me with its wide eyes and huge feathers. It brought in a feeling of guilt and shame every time I looked at it.
Although I detest all stuff artificial. But when it comes to Taxidermy. I love it when it is presented in a faux form.
Now I am in luck. I found a handmade artist who excels in faux Taxidermy art. She has a lot of beautiful renderings of animals in her store. Though my favorite from her collection is this Unicorn.
It works best for a kid in need of some Pretend play with fairy tale characters.
Much like the taxidermy objects. You can hang it on a wall through the brackets provided on its rear. Or you could rest it on a side table also.
Its dimensions are- 17-inches (height) x 9-inches (length) x 5-inches (breadth). It weighs about 1.7 pounds.
My favorite feature of this mythical beast is its mane. They are chunky yarns in pastels shade of pink, white, mint and blue.
