    That is so cool! it would take wyatt probably 2 seconds to destroy it. I’ve seen a horse similar to this made out of some kind of tubing it was cool too!

      Yeah, my son wanted to play with it too. I dont’ think that horse would have lasted too long had he been allowed too. 😀

    I saw a bunch of these somewhere. I mean pictures of them. I can’t remember now where I saw it. They apparently sold for a lot of money! The ones I saw were made of driftwood though I think. Very cool.

      That’s cool! Would you like to buy a nice big photo of this for LOTS and LOTS of money? Please? Yes?

      Innit though? This was really awesome and one of the VERY few things the art gallery would allow me to shoot. 😀

    That is beautifully crafted, although the Greek soldiers would have trouble hiding in it, the Trojans would see through their deceptive plan…

      BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That’s the first thing I thought when I saw this. The Trojans would have had no problem seeing the one or maybe two soldiers inside this one. LOL

    You went to the art museum yay! bet you didn’t get bored in the first 2 minutes like “someone” i know did. there was a similar wood horse in the art museum here but the body was solid and then covered with the smaller pieces of wood.

    • October 23, 2009 8:48 PM

      I sure did! No, I didn’t get bored at all. I had a great time there! Horses must be popular at art museums then? LOL

      Thanks! Those look AWESOME! I’m not sure who did the horse at the art gallery I visited but I now wonder if this lady did it? If not, I believe that she was the inspiration for it for sure. 😀

    Hmmm, very neat, but makes me feel like I need to eat something….
