along the same path; atlas imagined

IMG_8179
Yesterday’s post with the little Swedish carved horse sketch got me thinking about carved horses in general. Another sweep around the web brought me a google image page with carved rocking horses from the 1800’s. These were, presumably, made for children; a particular maker, a particular child. This horse, its shape and colour and the arc under it are part of the story of these individuals, days lived out and love shared.
