Response #22


This is an Indian ink drawing #22 from the Psalm response idea book
The initial wooden model below shows up the missing black, this may or may not be an issue.

I see the two plinths in stone and the horse like form in black iron (two pieces and riveted at the neck) 
Iron and stone (granite) will work much better than wood because I am feeling a sense of strength from the drawing that is lost in the model.

The simple form has an ancient Etruscan feel.
Some Psalms carry a gathered strength, a robust belief that the ancients communicated.
I think I want this piece to exhale some of that sense.
