“From all the ancient books, he was only mentioned once. When the sins and sorrows of mankind became so great all the unicorns were taken from the earth because their purity could not stand the descent into chaos. Only one remained.
He believed if he stayed he could help humanity absorb the pain around them. His pure white color slowly turned black as he absorbed the sorrows of mankind. Even a comforting angel could not convince him to leave. The Dark Unicorn remains.” – Michael Parkes
The Marcus Ashley Gallery has been in the business of curating and displaying art for over 18 years. The patrons of the gallery believe in sharing their love of art with like-minded individuals. Here is where one can truly experience the world of art through varied creative forms. While perusing through the collections at the gallery, don’t miss out on the Michael Parkes art collection.
Unicorns have been the stuff of European folklore for thousands of years. According to legend, the mighty spiral-horned beasts once walked the earth among men. These horse-goat hybrids were revered for their purity, magical powers, innocence, and gentleness.
In Dark Unicorn, Parkes shares a riveting narrative of one unicorn that remains to save man from perpetual ruin. The artist’s flawless execution of layering paint on canvas elevates the underlying narrative of this piece. Meticulous brushwork, rich pigments, and painstaking craftsmanship make Dark Unicorn a must-have Parkes masterpiece.
