The Siberian Unicorn, described as a rhino, was supposed to be extinct — are you sitting down? — for 350.000 years! Yet radio carbon dating (C14) ostensibly presumably dates a recently discovered skull to only 29.000 years old, which is of course also ludicrous, as the global Deluge was only 4.400 years ago (2400 BC). How embarassing! Man and Rhino lived together they say now!
The sample was found near the settlement of Kozhamzhar; it is a skull fragment of Elasmotherium sibiricum – an ancient rhinoceros. I sent a piece of the skull to the Queen’s University Belfast laboratory for the radiocarbon analysis. Elasmotherium is considered extinct about 350,000 years ago, and the age of this skull is 29,000 years.
Strange fact is that most mainstream media that covered the news of the find did NOT feature the actual find of the skull of the beast, but only a mythical Darwinian interpretation of bones found and called the Siberian Unicorn.
But here is the reconstruction of the beast. The first most placed picture shows a strange blue skull which was not the found one, and the reconstruction on the right very small. I had to hunt long for a bigger version which is below. Look at that straight horn ans how long compared to the skull! Is it really the same beast as the Siberian Rhino? (3rd picture) The reconstruction’s horn below is thicker than the one above. is it the same beast? The picture of the actual 29.000 year old find is below that. NO horn at all!
History of Legendary Unicorns
1. 400 BC: Ctesias and other historical writers
One of the earliest mentions of a unicorn was in the 5th century by Greek physician and historian Ctesias. He wrote about white, powerful creatures with red heads, dark blue eyes and singular, multi-colored, foot-and-a-half-long horns. About as long as the Rhino horn above!
Unicorn experts like Odell Shepard believe that Ctesias heard secondhand from Indian travelers, perhaps unwittingly describing rhinoceroses. Su-u-ure!
Other prominent historical figures who have been connected to or written about unicorns include Aristotle, Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan and Julius Caesar.
2. 1495 to 1505: The Unicorn Tapestries
These unicorn tapestries are thought to be some of the most recognized legitimate unicorn art, and certainly some of the most beautiful tapestries to date.
Painstakingly handwoven in the Southern Netherlands from silk, wool and metallic threads, the seven hangings are known as “The Hunt of the Unicorn” or “The Unicorn Tapestries.” Each is about 12 feet tall. A monogram of the letters “A” and “E” is woven into the corners, but no one knows for certain what they stand for.
The La Rouchfoucald family of France owned the unicorn tapestries for a number of centuries. In 1923, John D. Rockefeller purchased them for more than a million dollars. He eventually donated the tapestries to the Cloisters branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Its value is inestimable.
“The Lady and the Unicorn” is a very similar series of six tapestries, woven in Flanders, and considered one of the greatest surviving works of the Middle Ages.
