Europe's unicorns are indeed known better than Asia's but India is the original place unicorn ideas really started not only with animals but with the story of Risharinga. Why the horse like unicorns spread in Europe was the Eurpeans didn't yet understand Hebrew beliefs of antelope. Medieval days Europe believed in unicorns enough to try to hunt them but what tricked them about the magical horns was actually the ivory tooth of narwhals. Asia's unicorns are fiercer than Europe's. 

Antelope, rhinos, and narwhals are just the animals who tricked people the easiest they're not the only animals written in the imagination of early people, in fact rhino aren't the first unicorn, the triceratops of 25,000 years or more ago was the first living unicorn, the second one was the woolly rhino today's is the rhino in India and African states. The horse-like unicorns are the syombolic ones and they're  in fables, legends, fiction, myths, and folktales too. 

Genghis Khan was one who thought a unicorn told him to stop invading Asia, Emperor Fu Hsi was one who thought a unicorn gave him the writing of China, Daniel was one who dreamed of a ram fighting a unicorn and the dream meant Persia's war with Greece. In Noah's story unicorns transform repeatedly horned horse and narwhal while his ark sails. They're shown photo with Adam and Even several ways but they're always by the tree, unicorns also do with King James versions. The ninth century is when a writer for the first time said unicorns were supernatural. But if you put Asia's unicorn type list with Europe's there are more than ten types a horse face is just the most often seen appearance.
