PERSIAN
UNICORN
TERRIBLE HORN

    In Persia a single horn was the symbol for highest cruelty and danger and therefore the shadhahvar was regarded as a dangerous beast. It was described as a creature that looked somewhat like an antelope yet with a single horn on its forehead. This horn hat hollow ends which created the most beautiful and tempting melodies when the wind blew trough them. Other animals who heard these melodies were lured out of their hiding places by the sound and killed by the shadhahvar at the very moment they had come too near to it.
