Horse / Rhinoceros in the Tamed series offers a striking juxtaposition between domestic tranquility and untamed wilderness.

In the upper scene, a graceful horse gallops freely within the confines of a municipal manege, its powerful strides echoing against the backdrop of a bustling cityscape. The rhythmic thud of hooves on grass and the fluttering mane create an aura of energy and vitality, capturing the essence of equestrian spirit.

Beyond, the stables and barrier of the manege frame the horse’s graceful movements, while distant city residential buildings and leafy trees underscore its close connection to human habitation.

Below, a powerful rhinoceros roams freely across the African savannah, its imposing figure a symbol of raw strength and untamed wilderness. Against the backdrop of rugged mountains and a shimmering water basin, the rhinoceros navigates its natural habitat with effortless grace. The vast expanse of the savannah underscores the untamed beauty of the wild, providing a glimpse into the awe-inspiring majesty of nature’s unbridled spirit.

Our exclusive “stetching” technique seamlessly merges traditional stitching with modern sketching, creating a lifelike and intricate portrayal. The monochrome elegance achieved through white fabric and a single strand of black floss imparts a timeless quality, reminiscent of classic graphic art.
