This is simply an enchanting carving.. intended to originally be a celtic style horse, but during the carving process, a strange and magical thing happened, a small horn started to appear.. and so a Baby Unicorn was born! hand carved in Caen stone (A finegrained french Limestone) suitable for indoors or outside in the garden. if left outside the stone will collect algae over time, and being quite a soft stone, details on the stone will soften and lose their sharpness. If you want to enjoy it in the garden, but slow down this natural weathering process, bring it inside during winter months when the weather is harshest.
