A gallant, protective winged unicorn. This was inspired by the story in Islam of the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH), where a horse-like creature lightening-fast was brought to him called Buraq, in the holy city of Jerusalem. He embarked on a miraculous journey mounted on this horse and ascended to paradise. This is my depiction of this protective, miraculous, gallant, and majestic horse who is to this day has a part of the Western Wall named after it, Buraq Wall, linked to the Al-Buraq Mosque.
