Sun Horse, Moon Horse by BWS Sun Horse, Moon Horse by BWS
"Sun Horse, Moon Horse" is a colorful and detailed celtic design of two winged horses - one for the Sun, one for the Moon. Knotwork designs surround and include them, with other intricate borders appearing on their bodies.

Above and below are wide borders with a design of interlaced dogs separated by the faces of the Sun (above) and Moon (below). The Moon shows her four phases across the border.

"Sun Horse, Moon Horse" is also the name of a powerful, short book by Rosemary Sutcliff; the book is about the nature of art and the nature of leadership, and the creation of the Great Chalk Horse of Uffington. This painting has no connection with that book other than its title.

Did you sell this to Big Fish Games? It's in one of their games I just finished playing on my ipad, broken up into a puzzle you have to fit together.

Grim Tales: The Legacy by Big Fish Games. If you give me a couple days I can play through it again and catch a screenshot for you.

I saw this one in the game, too. And I was sure from the first glance that I have it in my deviantArt favourites. Here it is. Did someone notice the artist?

Actually, considering this is supposed to be Hrimfaxi and Skinfaxi, that wouldn't be far from the truth.

I think I'm in love! I usually think that most the work I see is awesome, but this is.... the mother of all awesomness!
Love the way you've made the horses to look like a combination of horses and dragon serpents. I also love the celtic patterns, I don't have the chance to see very much of those nowadays.

This is just awesome, you're awesome! :D
