I got a carousel horse for my 21st birthday, as a reminder not to grew up too fast. I love it and I put it in the entry way of every place I have ever lived.
The craftsmanship that goes into these is astounding. The older ones were all hand carved with metal details in their paint. IE bits and reins.
Lovely photo it reminds me of a gate way into childhood. The bright colors and whimsical painting speaks to the imagination,
and the lower angle of the picture captures that invitation to enter and join the fun.
