Each unicorn horn is unique.. with its own special touch of celestial/elemental magic.



THE UNICORN

The unicorn became a religious symbol in the art of the Middle Ages. The original tale was that a beautiful maiden representing the Virgin Mary managed to trap a unicorn, whereupon the unicorn became tame and lay its head in her lap.

As the legend grew through reinterpretation, the unicorn was viewed as the Christ or Incarnation and the death of a unicorn as the Passion of Christ. This allowed a pagan symbol to become highly esteemed within the church. In fact, a grouping or herd of unicorns is called a “blessing” of unicorns.


The correct term for the unicorn horn is "alicorn". Alicorns are amongst the most powerful magical items. They were prized by popes and kings because they provided protection against all manner of evil, including epilepsy, pestilence and poisoning.

The ancient Chinese, Greeks, Romans and other peoples had accepted the unicorn as real, and the arrival of the beautifully spiraled objects seemed to prove the animal's existence. The supposed horns sparked huge interest because they were said to have the power to cure ills and neutralize poisons.

Kings and emperors, eager to foil assassins, had cups and eating utensils made of the precious horns. A London doctor advertised a drink made from powdered tusks that could cure scurvy, ulcers, dropsy, gout, consumption, coughs, heart palpitations, fainting, rickets and melancholy.

The horns became an icon of power, both earthly and divine, in part because of their religious associations. In medieval times, the unicorn was seen as a symbol of great purity and of Christ, the motif common in religious art. The fantastic beast appeared in many thousands of images.



PEGASUS

Pegasus is a symbol of knowledge, glory, and inspiration. Since ancient times, Pegasus has been a symbol of power and speed as well as imagination. The symbol of Pegasus was mostly used on cars and was advertised as “the spirit of flying horsepower”.

The story of Pegasus reflects the story of Mobil. The flying red horse appears on Mobil packaging around the world, symbolizing the power and speed made possible through the use of Mobil products. Pegasus' association with the Muses likewise emphasizes the creative innovation for which Mobil has been known for more than a century.
