Wading Horse

Wading Horse

Piece description from the artist

A muscular brown and white horse with a black mane and tail wades into shallow forest pond and gazes at its reflection. Perhaps this wild mustang is about to drink or simply is watching the fish. Maybe it is lonely and looks to its mirror image as a companion. I, however, prefer to think that horse is sort of the equine version of Narcissus, the mythological Greek hunter who was in love with his own reflection (and the source of the word narcissist).
