Yelena Bryksenkova’s Unicorn

Yelenas_Unicorn

This picture of a unicorn was created by Yelena Bryksenkova, a Russian illustrator currently based in the USA.

From the look of it I would suggest that this image has been strongly influenced by ‘The Unicorn in Captivity’, one of the seven unicorn tapestries held by the Metropolitan Museum in New York. The position of the unicorn is almost identical and it is similarly set agasint a floral backdrop. The only thing that is missing is the pen to keep the unicorn in.
