all the qualities of a horse. The majestic body, the elegance and grace of movement, the speed of flight and the silent strength in the all seeing eyes. A horse knows who to trust!

Hi all,

Interesting thoughts from everyone. :D

The Amerind winged horse symbolizes what the person is inwardly (what the person strives to become), where a golden horse might symbolize what a person wants external to the self (what the person strives to own). The two symbols may appear to an observer to have visual similarities, but the direction of their creation is from opposing polarities and have opposing meanings/interpretations. Just how unicorns relate, I am uncertain. Could the unicorn have in part been the creation of a desire for material possessions? Or perhaps the interpretation just got turned around?

I’m sorry, I thought the qualities were evident. The person who lives in a specific culture will relate specific symbols to specific inward qualities. Terms such as ‘honesty’ and ‘fairness’ become players in the whole of the concept, but not as outward behavior, rather as inward nature.

Agreed, physical evidence of a unicorn specie does not exist to my knowledge.

Metaphysical? You are referring only to the unicorn? The term “metaphysics” does not apply to the Amerind winged horse.

Hmmm, why would you assume I would choose to not recognize such a distinction?
