The Hunt by PinkParasol The Hunt by PinkParasol
"The Hunt"
8"x10"
oils on canvas
July 2012

Details: [link]

In medieval and renaissance times, they said that in order to catch a unicorn you had to use an innocent young girl to lure the unicorn out of hiding. It would momentarily forget it was a wild animal, and lay in the maiden's lap, allowing for the hunters to trap it.

I wanted to illustrate an instance where someone didn't want to give the unicorn to its captures, and instead hid it to keep it safe, preserving the innocence of both involved.

I can't think of a superlative that would do this justice. I wish I could paint like you.

Honestly one of the most beautiful pieces of art I have ever seen in my life. And I've seen alot. The innocence and purity of it all evokes an emotion in me that nothing else ever has. Outstanding, fantastic work.
