The Girl with 7 Horses

Self Portrait

I LOVE this series of blog posts done by Ulrika Kestere. She is a very talented photographer and artist. Check out her website for more of her work.

"The Girl with 7 Horses" was a series of posts about a story...

"Once upon a time there was a girl who had 7 invisible horses. People thought she was crazy and that she in fact had 7 imaginative horses, but this was not the case. When autumn came the girl spent a whole day washing all her clothes. She hung them on a string in her garden to let the gentle autumn sun dry them. Out of nowhere, a terrible storm came and its fiercefull winds grabbed a hold of all her clothes and all seven horses (authors note: since they are invisible they obviously didn't weigh much). The girl was devestated and spent all autumn looking for each horse spread around the country, wrapped in her clothes."

The horses were then found throughout the country and displayed from October 2011 to January 2012. Here they are...

Don't you just love the imaginative, dreamy, creative artwork involved here? I only wish that there was more of the story!
