Unicorns, Mary, and the Cross

I can't improve on (the source of this picture) Dirty Catholic's withering caption:
"Because the only thing missing from the Fatima apparitions? Unicorns."

There's plenty of depictions of the Virgin Mary with blue eyeshadow, but this takes the cake. Click the pic to enlarge, if your eyes aren't bleeding yet.

(Uh, you can buy it here...where they imply that artfully depicts a resurrection sequence. But no unicorns in the Gospel either. Dang!)

What's even better is that the description on their webpage calls them "pegasus." Clearly we're dealing with people absolutely no Christian nor fantastical-horse background. Unicorns have horns, pegasuses (pegasi?) have wings. (Excuse me, is my jr. high dork showing?)

Isn't there a unicorn in one of the alternate endings to Mark?

"And these signs shall accompany those who believe... They shall see unicorns and call them pegasuses..."

Not to defend the piece, but the Unicorn is actually a traditional symbol for Christ.
