The Four Rocking Horses of the Apocalypse
A sculpture series by Carrin Welch, made from wood and intended to be ridden by adult sized kids.
Carrin's interpretation of these horsemen from Revelation in the Bible is very loose, an artistic idea based mostly on how they look, and less on any academic or theological interpretations. They appear ominous and imposing, but the catch is that they are giant toys. Meant to be fantastic and absurd, but also beautiful and magical, you cannot ride one of the mammoths without feeling a little joy. With this world feeling so unstable, and all the theories of its end, the rocking horses bring light to a dark time.
