Excellent quote GZ. Wish more thought like that...seems we are taught from day one that being number uno is the most important thing in life...

I would not impose such crass and unnecessary vanity on a beautiful freedom loving creature like a horse.
Competition is invented by humans, and thus it's on artists to refuse it. And maybe spring the horses, too.
Other than that, I like what Bela's getting at, and the pic is good, makes me wanna see the whole sculpture.
