Stone Sculpture Found In India

Last week in India there was a stone sculpture of a unicorn that was discovered. This representational sculpture, which is thought to be from the 12th or 13th century, is claimed to be one of the rarest of the unicorn icons found in India.

Although this is not an abstract sculpture, some people might have a hard time classifying it because it is a combination of a horse, elephant, and bull. The right front leg clearly resembles an elephant’s leg. The hind leg has a hoof at the tip like that of a bull. And the face looks just like the face of a horse.

Being that this is not a contemporary sculpture, it might be hard for people to understand what this creation is all about. Fortunately, Professor Murugeshi of MSRS College Shirva, is somebody who has the knowledge of what this sculpture is all about. According to Murugeshi, this is what the demigods from Tulu folklores rode on in the past.

Even though this is not a modern sculpture, and it is based on folklore, not realism, this sculpture is still something that can be appreciated in today’s day and age. Because this sculpture tells a story and it is aesthetically pleasing to look at, it serves a purpose and is an important piece of the history of India. And as time moves forward, its value will only increase.
