In 1961, Henri Matisse’s painting Le Bateau was hung upside down at New York’s Museum of Modern Art……*ouch* It took 46 days before someone noticed!

Welcome to a new tutorial on NIL-Tech:  "How to draw Unicorn Step by step”. Unicorn is a legendary animal that has been explained given that antiquity as a beast with a single large, pointed, spiraling horn projecting from its forehead. The unicorn was depicted in ancient seals of the Indus Valley Civilization and was discussed by the ancient Greeks in accounts of nature by various writers, including Ctesias, Strabo, Pliny the Younger, and Aelian. The Bible also explains an animal, the re'em, which some versions translate as unicorn.

In European folklore, the unicorn is typically illustrated as a white horse-like or goat-like animal with longhorn and cloven hooves (in some cases a goat's beard). In the Middle Ages and Renaissance, it was frequently referred to as a very wild forest animal, a sign of purity and grace, which could be recorded just by a virgin. In the encyclopedias, its horn was said to have the power to render poisoned water drinkable and to heal sickness. In medieval and Renaissance times, the tusk of the narwhal was in some cases sold as unicorn horn.
