Mexican Folk Art
Christopher Columbus brought 30 Spanish mustangs with him to the Americas on his second voyage in 1493. During this time the breed was considered to be the finest in the world. As the Spanish horse became a vital part of the new society, breeding farms were established in the Caribbean and Mexico. The mix of Spanish and native Mexican people produced a colorful and unique blend in cultural artwork, texture and design. The "Mexican Folk Art" horse accurately depicts this blending of traditions and histories. Quarter Horse model, made of resin, and measuring 6" high.
