Art Description

Drawing: Ink on Paper.

"[...]for there before him stood/
the legendary creature, startling white, that/
had approached, soundlessly, pleading with his eyes./
The legs, so delicately shaped, balanced a/
body wrought of finest ivory. And as/
he moved, his coat shone like reflected moonlight./
High on his forehead rose the magic horn, the sign/
of his uniqueness: a tower held upright /
by his alert, yet gentle, timid gait."/
R.M.Rilke /"the unicorn"/
