Description of The Bond
There is nothing on Earth quite so wondrous as the miracle of birth. How awe-inspiring and somehow humbling it is to be present as a new life makes its way into the world. To bear witness to life’s grand event is truly an experience like no other … from the tempest of the actual delivery to the gentle moments of recognition and bonding between mare and foal to follow. No matter how many times I see it and/or hear about it, it never fails to thrill and amaze me.
This painting represents the “bond” between mare and foal that defies description in mere words.
The horse. Here is nobility without deceit, friendship without envy, beauty without vanity. A willing servant, yet never a slave. (Duncan)
