Pieces of Eight

 I have made two groups of eight horses in sculptural form. In the past power and wealth was acquired by conquest on horseback by those with the most swift and powerful steads. Today, in China, horses are auspicious symbols of economic prosperity often depicted as eight together in sculptures and painting. My horses bound and gambol on carousels and fly through the air, symbols of currency and good fortune.
