The Trail of Painted Ponies "Northern Lights," 1E/5,589.
Horses are familiar to all of us, but many of the world's most beautiful animals live in remote precincts on the planet and are far less familiar. The award-winning painter and book illustrator, Janee Hughes, created this spectacular tribute to some of the creatures that are at home in the vast distances of the arctic. On one side you will find the animals that spend most of their lives in the forests and mountains, the Arctic wolf, the caribou, and on the other are animals that live mostly in the sea or on sea ice, the walrus, polar bear, humpback whale. Above them all are the breathtaking, shifting, shimmering northern lights.
