Size: 80 x 99 x 46 Inches

Description: A larger than life horse that looks like it's made of twisted branches

Caption: All of Butterfield's horses are mares, which she conceived from the first as symbolic self-portraits.
"I first used the horse images as a metaphorical substitute for myself - it was a way of doing a self-portrait one step removed from the specificity of Deborah Butterfield."
