Horse of Birch Bark by Jenni Tieaho



We visited Mäntän Kuvataideviikot, "Mänttä Art Weeks" a few weeks ago.
Now we would like to share something very special with you!

 The first thing we saw in the entrance hall as we arrived,
was this natural size horse sculpture .



The posture of the horse and the illusion of movement was so strong
 that you just waited for the horse to stand up, shake himself 
and chortle happily after wallowing on the ground.

The details were amazingly beautifully done.




Poultry netting and birch bark. Absolutely fantastic.

The artist Jenni Tieaho, born in 1969. Works and lives in Lohja, Finland.
Artist of the year 2015
