Horses, Disturbing The Peace…

The wood sculptures at the 2017 Garderen Sand Sculpture exhibition follow a “nature” theme. This one is of two horses… and I must admit that I find it rather unsettling. Are the two horses in the act of procreation? I have no problem with that, it’s a natural act after all,  but would I want a statue of it in my home or garden? That’s entirely another thing. Are they perhaps wild horses, neighing and whinnying as they gallop? Again, no idea. The wild eyes and expression of the horse at the top is far from restful though and I think that not knowing what the artist had in mind makes this piece unnerving. Not all of the sculptures here are tranquil (and that’s ok too), but this one really does disturb the viewers peace.

    • This artist has I think either a strange sense of humour, or a weird idea about composition!
