This project is devoted to one of the most beautiful and graceful animals on the planet: horse.
There is something prehistoric in the look of this incredible creature. The connection between humans and horses is also legendary. Man's life seems almost impossible without horses. Many artworks in poetry, visual, music, literature, sculpture, performing etc are inspired by these species The intellect of the horses is beyond any possible understanding. Our ancestors thought that humans got reincarnated from horses who served man for generations on so many levels of life. In these photos we would like to highlight this connection that will be sensual, spiritual and artistic at the same time.
The horse that is featured in the photos is Tír na nÓg. The name translated from Irish means "The Land Of Youth" and comes from the ancient Irish Mythology. The land is depicted as a supernatural realm of everlasting youth, beauty, health, abundance and joy. According to the tale one day #Oisín, a human hero, a great warrior, a son of legendary Fionn Mac Cumhaill, a leader of Fianna being in the group of great protectors who guarded High King of Ireland, saw a beautiful white horse in distance, and on its back was most beautiful young woman they had ever seen. Her hair were color of sun, and fell to her waist, and she wore a dress of palest blue studded with stars. She was surrounded by a golden light. “My name is #Niamh,” said goldenhaired maiden, “my father is King of mystical land of Tír Na nÓg, a land that knows no sorrow and where nobody ever ages. I have heard wonderful things of a great warrior named Oisín, and I have come to take him with me back to Land of Eternal Youth.” A woman of the Otherworld, Oisin and a human Niamh fell in love. She brought him to Tír na nÓg, The Land Of Youth on a magical horse that could travel over water. After spending what seems to be three years there, Oisín became homesick and wanted to return to Ireland. Niamh reluctantly let him return on the magical horse, but warned him never to touch the ground. When he returned to his mother land, he found that 300 years have passed in Ireland. Oisín fell from the horse. He instantly became elderly, as the years caught up with him, and he quickly died of old age.
