Rocking Horse and Train

Imagine a large, hand-made wooden rocking horse sitting with its rockers snugly on abandoned train tracks ... It moves gently when touched, its smoothly carved legs and face and woolly tail invite hands to touch them. My sculpture pays homage to a great Canadian artist, Alex Colville, his painting Horse and Train, and is my own personal take on free will.
