Year of the Unicorn: Sluagh of the Unicorn by kirileonard Year of the Unicorn: Sluagh of the Unicorn by kirileonard
Inspired by Scottish folklore.  The Sluagh were the spirits of the restless dead, they are almost always depicted as troublesome and destructive. They were seen to fly in groups like flocks of birds, coming from the west, and were known to try to enter the house of a dying person in an effort to carry the soul away with them. 


An illustration for my upcoming Unicorn Calendar.

The background in general! Also the way the unicorn was designed both sinister and wonder simultaneously. Which is the best way I could describe it!

Truly a mesmerising piece of artwork. I love the subject and little tale that inspired it.
It has a surreal and close feeling to it. Nicely done!
