This fascinating design brings together the mythical qi lin, which signifies yin-yang harmony in ancient Chinese mythology, and the fabled unicorn from western folklore. While they have their origins in different cultural traditions, the two horse-like creatures have been revered for centuries, sharing intriguing likenesses in their appearance and otherworldly powers.
