Trail of Painted Ponies "Kindred Spirits." 1E/0,161
Pony Story: "Like many Native People, I have a deep love and respect for animals and what we can learn from them, says this self-taught artist from Loon Lake, Washington. Guided by this belief, she has imagined a Pony standing in a mountaintop meadow, surrounded by animal friends, each with a lesson to teach. The buffalo represents renewal. The Eagle sees the world with clarity. The bear stands for power. The wolf is a model for cooperation. The mouse, though small, was looked upon by traditional tribes as a pathfinder. "And the circle around the Pony's eye speaks to the improved vision that comes from using animal wisdom to improve our daily lives."
