Inspired by the scene in ‘Bedknobs and Broomsticks’ when the horse armor in an English museum comes to life and charges onto the field. It was a very creepy scene but it really stuck in my mind. There is a hidden hallway in the Metropolitan Museum of Art where you can find statues of armed horses like this charging down the center, with all sorts of warrior gear along the walls. I hardly ever run into it when I visit but when I do it is awe inspiring!
This fellow is inspired by a broke-down looking horsie pull toy from the 1940′s. He looks just like our cartoons today! I just put legs where his wheels would be. Tally ho!
