Silver tiger Gothic Unicorn by Reptangle Silver tiger Gothic Unicorn by Reptangle
"Gothic" as in the time period in art history when unicorns were sometimes portrayed as short tailed, little goat- like creatures.

As per tradition, I based this this unicorn sculpture on goat anatomy instead of horse. He has a llama tail.
His horn is gold plated pewter and he has nine Swarovski jewels set in his collar. His eyes are metallic blue glass and he is about 71/2 inches long.
This special one was sold on Ebay, but we are painting these in black as a limited production batch in our online store.

He is a gypsum reproduction of my original sculpture , produced by Windstone Editions.

I would like to do a pyo Gothic unicorn, but I was looking at our online store and noticing that about 90% of our stuff is out of stock! We can't keep up with regular orders, so I'm thinking, why am I working on NEW things?

The Gothic Unicorn is my favourite Windstone sculpt! Will they be in the store inventory again?

We will make them again, but it isn't easy to do. We need to re-make the molds because we somehow lost the original "tooling" we use to replicate new rubber molds for this piece. In other words we need to start from scratch to make new molds!  It is one of the projects on our list.

Maybe just a new edition of the gothic? The test paints on it are amazing. The dark ivory and pronghorn designs were both beautiful.

 We will ,when we get around to making new molds. Past batches were cast from some very very old molds that we found. Those molds have all worn out, so we need to start from scratch to make new molds on a new "master".

I adore Windstone Editions and have the female dragon and one of the hatching dinosaurs. I would love to collect more but I can't afford them just now. This one looks awsome!

How beautiful! His markings and tiny little tail remind me of a little bob-tailed tabby cat I used to have.

As always your work is flawless in its beauty .And i particularly love this, i prefer the true goat like unicorn a thousand times more to Americanized horned horse counterpart.
