The Blazing Clydesdale-L7-150

The Blazing Clydesdale

Artist: James Gow
Sponsor: Hamilton BID
Location: M&D's - Scotland Theme Park

I was interested in creating a Clydesdale horse design that was lighthearted, fun and will hopefully be enjoyed by all who see it.  As I was developing my design I was exploring horse motifs and symbols.  I then realised that 31st January 2014 was the Chinese New Year .  In the Chinese calender, based on phases of the moon and horse progressed into a space theme – eventually I created a horse space traveller who is on a journey from Earth to the Moon to welcome 2014 as the year of the Horse.
