Postcard Friendship Friday

Our lovely hostess for Postcard Friendship Friday is Beth.
Be sure you visit and see the beautiful sleeping beauty Beth has posted.

On the beautiful woman theme, how's this beauty with the baby unicorn?


Unicorn Postcard


The back of the postcard reads: WOMAN HOLDING YOUNG UNICORN
Brown and white chalk on grey paper. 29.2 by 44.4 cm.
"Now the Garden shone with a holy light, as on a joyous morning when the dew still sparkles and every leaf is green ... Days then had little meaning, and time passed in unaccounted bliss. The memory of that unsullied glory lingers to this day, which is why even our sweetest quietude is touched with a sense of exiled longing."

From the book UNICORNIS: On the History and Truth of the Unicorn published by Running Press. Copyright 1983. 1986 by Michael Green.

Happy PFF!

Never thought of baby unicorns before, always thought they arrived fully formed, I obviously have to read the book:-) Happy PFF.

The damsel reminds me of a Leonardo da Vinci drawing. The baby unicorn is just plain KYOOT!

Your blog is too nice to be reduced to 1 blogpost visible at a time, and the rest into the archive.
Leave 5 current, maybe. :)

You're right....she is a beautiful woman.

I used to collect unicorns and I think I still have a few postcards. The problem is where did I put them!!

Debs said...

fascinating how enduring the legends about these mythological creatures are...this baby looks a little scary though!
