Trail of Painted Ponies "Skyrider" 1E/1,548 (damaged box)
Pony Story: The Hopi believe that when their elders pass on, they continue to exist among the clouds, where they protectively watch over their descendants. Wendy, a graduate of the London School of Fine Art who feels her spirit dwells in the deserts, mesas and canyons of the Southwest, has taken this belief to new heights literally imagining a Pony stampeding across the sky on a glorious journey, collecting the faces of the ancestors and becoming one with the Cloud People.
