Running Horses

Running Horses post image

I was asked to design and create a wall sculpture that incorporated two important elements for my client. They wanted to express their belief in the combined symbolism of horses and the number 8. The number 8 is a symbol of perfection and prosperity. The horse is the symbol for virtue, vitality, beauty and strength. They believe these terms express and reflect the deeper personal philosophy of their company.  Using a plasma cutter and a mig welder, I was able to cut and weld all the parts to create the wall sculpture. I had fun juxtaposing the different sizes and positions of the horses. I staggered the horses  and overlaid the forms to add a sense of depth.
