Chincoteague Wild Driftwood Horse
Wild ponies have inhabited Assateague Island for hundreds of years. Legends say that the wild ponies of Assateague can trace their origin to horses released to forage on the Island by early settlers. However, the evidence suggests that they are the descendants of the survivors of a Spanish galleon which wrecked off the coast of Assateague. These stories have been passed from generation to generation on Chincoteague Island.
Fact or fiction, these Chincoteague wild horses were the inspiration for this organic driftwood beauty which is quite a conversation piece. You can just imagine the freedom these animals feel when you look at this wild windswept mane.
This hand-crafted horse is carefully and respectfully created by our artist from the earth's abandoned materials into long-lasting and limited-edition home products. By reusing the environment's natural resources for his functional art, Josh hopes to inspire people to reduce their impact on the planet by making use of his and other artists' sustainable creations.
