What is the basis of legend of Unicorn?In the folk-stories of Japan and Korea, we frequently hear about dragon. Dragon is an inseparable part of folklore of this region. Although we have not found any evidence of existence of dragon (komodo dragon found in Indonesia is a lizard), many people of Chinese and Korean origin firmly believes in dragon.
Similarly Indian folklore tells us about the horse which can fly. Flying horses are part of folklore of every region of India. Many people still believes in the existence of flying horses, although zoologists think that such horses are not possible.
In Europe, people believe in Unicorn. Unicorn is a legendary creature which has been described as a beast (like dear) with a single large, pointed, spiraling horn projecting from its forehead. I am interested to know how this non-existent animal appeared in the imagination of European people. Why many people in Europe believe in the existence of Unicorn.
