The royal arms of England’s monarchy features a lion and a unicorn holding up a shield. This whimsical drawing brings that myth to life with a lion and a unicorn working together to hold up the shield. Another great public domain image from the imagination of Oliver Herford.
The author of The Mythological Zoo introduced the children of 1912 to a menagerie full of mythological beasts, heroes and villians. All of them were brought to life by the artist Oliver Herford (1863-1935).
