African Unicorn Room Guardian by AnyaBoz African Unicorn Room Guardian by AnyaBoz
This one of a kind unicorn has a citrine crystal heart and has a hand dyed faux fur coat. Its back stands about 10 inches tall. I am so pleased with this unicorn's design. I love making my own interpretations of such a well known fantasy creature. I used the recently discovered epoxy clay for the horn on this unicorn. That clay is remarkable. I'm so happy I tried it out because it makes such wonderful durable horns and accessories that I would normally have to use resin for. 

Room Guardians are small creatures that protect one's home from negative spirits and energies. These friends can be easily placed on window sills, kitchen shelves, dressers, or wherever to keep watch over the room. Each guardian has a soft faux fur coat and each is individually sculpted from the wire frame to the clay face and hands, so no two are alike. The room guardians' arms, tails, and necks are bendable and Inside each of their chests is a unique crystal heart to give each one a different energy. These little guys have a lot of character and they love having a home to watch over.

 1. How did you come up with the room guardian concept?
 The idea caught fire when a friend and I were walking through an antique store. On one of the bookshelves sat two stuffed foxes wearing riding clothes. I contemplated buying them because one could convince themselves that their expressionless stares were actually seeing and watching over the room. It was as if they were alive though they were a long way from being realistic. My contemplation came to an end when I realized I could spend less money and have a better one if I just made it myself. That is where

 Really love this one. I like the black fur that falls around the horn. Makes me think of a wolf/horse with goat feet hehe.

Wow, that's such a cool design! :la: I don't ever remember there being African Unicorns, so I'll have to look them up now; I always think of the European unicorn. :giggle:
Anyway, this one that you made is very beautiful and unique, and to me it almost has a wolf-like appeal to it's face. :love:

Well I kind of just made up the african unicorn thing. I wanted to make 
a nontraditional unicorn and I thought body and markings fit with the animals
in africa so that's why it's named that. 

Thank you again though!:love:

Well, it really does suit it, it could be a savannah/desert unicorn too. :la: Ooh, that's a nice idea maybe for a story... And I typed in African Unicorn, and an Okapi came up. :XD: I never knew they were actually referred to as the 'African Unicorn', but I guess they were kind of like a mythical creature because they're rare.

Sigh me too. Seems like an expensive system to set up... but I feel like it might be worth the money now that I'm doing more volume...  I dunno
