About Guardian

"The Unicorn is not a horse. Known from the ancient world from drawings and stone carvings it is the medieval version that I am most attracted to. The body is somewhere between goat and lion, shaggy and wild, it’s nature being far from placid, is wise, fierce, alert. They have can purify poisoned waters and utterly destroy man’s erroneous incursions into the natural world, therefore a perfect emblem for environmental concerns. The Unicorn is not a horse".

Andrew Lacey

The unicorn will be the Spirit at all times.
The deer desires no other name
But that of the Soul; which name no man shall take away from it.
He that knows how to tame and master them by Art,
To couple them together,
And to lead them in and out of the forest,
May justly be called a Master.
— Alchemical Sacred Texts
