horse power.

I love this work by artist Keith Bentley. So simple and striking.

The juxtaposition of discarded automobile parts with horse hair makes me think of how the horse, as a utilitarian animal, died with the creation of the automobile. And how as a result are perhaps discarded as beings in our society more.

There are so many interesting ideas behind the horse and the car. The show piece, the pride of owner, the replacement of ones that are broken.
