The Unicorn believed to be a magical animal has always has always graced every book on mythology and folklore. In Greek history especially, the Unicorn is widely mentioned. As a legendary creature with a single horn and always colored white as a symbol of purity, its pictures have been found in many seals of the Indus Valley Civilization.
