About the Image
We view our animals with fondness. We often bestow our animals with human traits, little wigs, clothes, and such. But with such a majestic creature as a horse our reaction is less whimsical, the size and nature of a horse commands respect. They have been alongside humans for so much of our history. The Pony Pin-Up series takes dressing up animals to an extreme. We worked with the horses natural hair and added hair extensions and extensive grooming to produce the final results. Our reaction is mixed. Its not whimsical but it is definitely not serious either. We are left questioning our relation to, and our projections on animals.
