A unicorn is a mythological creature. Though the modern popular image of the unicorn is sometimes that of a horse differing only in the horn on its forehead, the traditional unicorn also has a billy-goat beard, a lion's tail, and cloven hooves—these distinguish it from a horse. Within Wicca and Paganism, the unicorn is often revered as an entity of pureness and good. They represent the Earth and symbolize purifying qualities as well as known to being a bane to anything evil. Unicorns in legend have been said to be able to neutralize and cure disease and poison with a simple light touch of their magic horn. There are some depictions in lore and text showing the Horned God along side a unicorn.
