Wild Stallion Thimble

Designed 2005

Several of my recent thimbles have taken of a more sculptural quality. The Wild Stallion thimble is a miniature statue. The setting is the American south west. A young stallion is savoring the thrill of the moment. He is leaping and spinning in whirlwind of motion. The thimble itself is a rock ledge. Native plants include a beaver tail cactus and a century plant. An old log is lies by the wayside. It is a silent reminder that youth is to be savored. A rattle snake crawls quietly below experiencing a different moment. The inside of the thimble contains a hidden treasure, the desert rose.
