When I worked on this series, I was expressing my love and gratitude for horses because of how they helped humanity grow up through centuries of conflict and ignorance.  Some, who never grew up with a horse will ever feel this kind of love, considering it instead a type of slavery.  But, it is not.  It is a marriage, the horse giving it’s all, and the rider giving everything, as well.  One needs to try this in order to know the spiritual bonding that is created – two completely different lifeforms in total communication.  I hope that as we become enslaved by the Internet we will not forget nor ever leave behind our brothers and sisters who have been with us for millennium.  For this design, I chose an abstract shape for a horse and another for a human then fused them together with parabolic arches and a reaching for the stars.
