CROW WARRIORS PRIDE


Height: 18.5cm

Artist: Kevin Kilhoffer

Material: Stone Resin


 


Once a nomadic tribe that roamed what is now Montana and Wyoming, the way of life for the Crow Indian Tribe changed dramatically with the acquisition of the horse.


Young men, instructed in horsemanship at an early age, grew into warriors who inspired awe among other tribes for their amazing feats on horseback.


An Oklahoma artist who has studied Plains Indians extensively created this tribute to the way the Crow also dressed their horses with more display than many other tribes, incorporating quill embroidery, beadwork, pendants, braided rawhide and the carving arts into their equine regalia.


 


Painted Ponies is a collection of figurines based on the life-sized public art project called The Trail of Painted Ponies which first appeared in Santa Fe, USA in 2001. Intended to promote cultural tourism, the project enchanted hundreds of thousands of people, produced dazzling original artwork, and raised almost a million dollars for the local community. The Trail of Painted Ponies explores the inspirational power of the horse by giving artists the opportunity to paint and embellish elegantly designed horse sculptures, which are crafted into highly detailed, miniature resin and ceramic collectible figurines that honour the spirit and capture the power, beauty and magic of the original artworks. These miniature works of art are prized by collectors who appreciate artistry and fine craftsmanship. All Painted Ponies begin as original designs submitted by established and emerging artists, which are transformed into finely detailed hand-painted resin or ceramic decal figurines. The diversity of imagery means there are Painted Ponies that will appeal to everyone. Each Painted Pony comes included with a story about the inspiration for the artwork.
