Artist Comments: 

My first encounter with the horses took place when I was around 4 years old. I will always remember that day. It was a summer evening and I was playing in the middle of the village street. Suddenly, I see my father running and shouting something, but I wasn’t aware of what it was. I wasn’t aware even of the carriage with wild horses that was coming at me from behind. I stopped playing and looked very surprised at my father. Then I heard breathing behind me… I turned around… and I saw the Horse: huge violet eyes, soft lips and flared nostrils.  The horses stopped right before me. By themselves – there was nobody in the carriage… Since then I have a special relationship with the horses. I love them and I trust them…
