Rare unicorn idol found in India

A rare unicorn idol from the 12th or 13th century was found in Udupi, India. While the animal appears horse-like overall, it is actually a chimera of several different types of animals. The idol may be associated with Naga Bermar, a local fertility god.

The idol is approximately a 25cm (10in) long and 19cm (7in) tall. The horn has been broken off but it is clear where it used to be. [photo]
