Mighty Fine High Horse

Christina Corvette Wright's avatar Christina Corvette Wright

The inspiration for this sculpture is the current social political environment that seems to promote intolerance for other people and their ideas: the image of the high horse stems from when I was a child and would became self-righteous and unwilling to listen my mother would tell me to get off of my high horse, this memory inspired me to create this sculpture symbolic of the current social/political environment. Within the glass work located inside the sculpture, the small circular pieces, I fired small pieces of horse manure that appears as small tan spots as a purely symbolic element, intending to provoke farther thought into the subject that when someone truly rides the self righteous High Horse looking down on other people, intolerant to other peoples opinions and rights, their own ideas and believes can be seen as "toxic waste" by the people around them. For everyone who knows me the horse is an Appaloosa and her name is Annabella.
