The second in the lore series is ‘Laura’s Unicorn’, inspired by stables, horses, and friends that I know. The reason why this piece is categorised in the ‘Lore Art’ section, is because there is a unicorn hidden amongst the horses!
In my experience, there are many youngsters enjoying riding stables on a weekend or holiday, busy watering and feeding ponies, constantly grooming coats and braiding manes, and generally making a fuss of their favourites. Although I never used to imagine my favourite horses were unicorns, I know some children like to pretend their steed is in fact a unicorn in disguise. On occasion however, I did used to pretend my bike was a horse!
It is with this idea that one of the horses is a unicorn, and yet no one seems to notice except for perhaps one child in the painting, who I have named Laura. Does no one notice that there is a unicorn because it is just in Laura’s imagination? Or is it because everyone else in the painting is distracted with the commotion in the centre?
