Trail of Painted Ponies "The Phoenix Pony" 1E/5,851
Pony Story: The Ancient Ones called these deserts home. Then, around 1400 A.D., for unknown reasons, they mysteriously disappeared. Hundreds of years later, a new town would arise from the ruins that would be appropriately named "Phoenix" after the fabulous mythical bird of brilliant scarlet and gold plumage that was said to have perished in flames, only to arise from the ashes. Created by Arizona artist Wendy Wells-Baileyk, "The Phoenix Pony" stands as a tribute to a timeless and a beautiful city that shares its name, and to the human capacity for renewal and rebirth. Created exclusively for The Phoenix Store at the Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix, AZ in 2005.
