A full size, realistically rendered, paper mache unicorn piñata filled with candy, toys, and confetti dangles upside down, suspended by a rope which binds all four feet together. Craning its neck so it can view the public right-side up, the mystical creature confronts the viewers gaze directly. How eager will the crowd be to beat this beautiful creature until its innards spill out in all their colorful, sugary glory?
