|Year of the Horse|
In Chinese astrology this year marks the year of the horse. This piece is inspired by the qualities of free spirit and boldness that the horse represents in Chinese folklore. It's carved from fallen aspen branches. The base is made with a mosaic if vintage reclaimed crate woods and yard sticks. The hat is made with bit of reclaimed furniture wood and topped with an antique glass knob. The hat is adorned with leaves that I carved and painted. There's also a bit of antique tin nailed to the hat and figure. The piece is painted with acrylic and metal leaf and finished with wax. It comes apart in sections for easy shipping.
