Unicorn Hunting Trophy, by Viktor Tinkl.

Lot # 41

Notes: Sculpture by Viktor Tinkl. Materials: Wood, Metal. The base of this work is 9 in diameter, its head protrudes 2 from the wall, and its head and horn together protrude 76. The unicorn is commonly described as an extremely wild woodland creature, a symbol of purity and grace, which could only be captured by a virgin.It is best known as the symbol of Scotland. The unicorn was chosen as such because it was seen as a proud and haughty beast that would rather die than be captured, just as Scots would fight to remain sovereign and unconquered.
