This Horse Rocks!

(click on images for larger view)
GREAT DESIGN IS TIMELESS. When I look at this early to mid-19th century child’s rocking horse, there is an elegance of simplicity that speaks to modernist design. Free of pretense or decoration, there is rhythm, balance and perfection here. I believe the sculptor Brancusi would have looked at this object with some awe.

This incredible object is available at the shop of Joshua Lowenfels in NYC.

Joshua does have some of the most graceful items to offer. This is a beauty, but it would be hard to keep the grandkids off of it!
