I love this 16th-century painting by Raphael.
The young lady seems to be throwing someone the side-eye. I bet she’s looking at the person who gave her that tiny unicorn to hold. She’s thinking, “No way this thing is housebroken.” And doesn’t it look like the unicorn is laughing? Yeah, I wouldn’t trust a laughing unicorn either. Too bad they didn’t have Twitter back then. I would have liked to see what the lady had to say about her portrait-sitting experience. What do you think she would have tweeted?
UPDATED TO ADD: Thanks to my commenters who reminded me of the tiny unicorn’s cousin, the tiny giraffe in the DirecTV “Opulence. I has it” commercial!
