Artist's Description

The horse is said to fly so lightly through the
night sky that, when it accidentally steps on
the back of a swallow in midflight, the undis-
turbed bird looks over her shoulder to see
what has touched her.

This is my pastel interpretation of the famous
figurine of the Flying Horse of Kansu, which
I did shortly after attending the exhibition of
archeological finds of the People’s Republic of
China, when it was on tour in Washington, DC,
in 1975. I drew the horse on a black desk blotter,
using a poster photo from the exhibition as a
model.

My original drawing was done in the blue and
white colors of the figurine’s current patina,
but through the magic of digital manipulation,
I can present a unique image of it here in bronze
tones, much as the horse may have appeared
when it was first cast in the days of the Han
Dynasty.
