  • “Horses are a superb creation. They’re charged with symbolism, strength, dynamism, beauty. They’re a source of inspiration… Horses are always found in a beautiful environment, at the heart of nature, they’re indistinguishable from nature. What I’m interested in is the quest for beauty.”
    — André Brasilier
