This stone unicorn, on my picture, was put on the right side of the brick gate to the Governor's Palace. The unicorn is a legendary creature shaped like a horse but with a single, often spiral, horn growing out of its forehead.
In popular belief, unicorn horns could neutralize poisons. The unicorn also served as a common symbol of indomitable pride and purity and of Jesus. The English lion and the Scottish unicorn remain a part of the British coat-of-arms to this day, supporting the royal shield.
