The Trail of Painted Ponies Egyptian Gold is part of the Spring 2016 herd.
Trail of Painted Ponies Egyptian Gold Story:
Gold was a symbol of power and immortality in Ancient Egypt, and as a decorative covering, gold leaf was believed to bring eternal life, the most famous example being the fabulous death mask of Tutankhamun. Working out of knowledge and love of Egyptian history, this Canadian artist has gilded a Painted Pony with the facsimile of gold leaf, and then decorated the form with symbols, images and hieroglyphics that tell the story of a battle won by a Pharaoh riding a horse-drawn chariot. The result is a Pony that preserves the richness and mystery of the many religious artifacts found in the tombs and pyramids of Ancient Egypt.
