Trail of Painted Ponies "Children of the Garden" 1E/8,248 (damaged box)
Pony Story: This delightful creation by a "tile artist" who designs handmade tiles (www.elkabodetile.com) tells a story of children racing across a magical garden on the back of a magical horse. A place where, in the artist's words, "For a magical moment the 'real world' is not allowed to encroach." On the original Pony, the children, bugs and flowers were all formed in clay and fired for hardness before they were hand painted.
