Short Description:

Herd, by Joe Landry of Montague, MA, consists of three ghost horses and a stallion. The ghost horses have concrete bodies on a steel base. The stallion is made of steel and Cor-ten steel.

Artist Description:

"This installation is intended to be in two groups separated by a short distance. The Ghost Horses in one group and the Stallion standing alone. Ghost forms do not have legs and appear to be floating above ground while the stallion is firmly footed."

"This herd represents the family relationship of horses with the stallion leading the way. As with the nature of a herd the ghost horse family is independent but, understanding the relationship and the power of running with a herd. Much like we humans."

Valued at: $14,000
