Egyptian Gold
Blue Ribbon Edition

Gold was a symbol of power and immortality in Ancient Egypt, and as a decorative covering, gold leaf was believed to bring eternal life, the most famous example being the fabulous death mask of Tutankhamun. Working out of knowledge and love of Egyptian history, this Canadian artist has gilded a Painted Pony with the facsimile of gold leaf, and then decorated the form with symbols, images and hieroglyphics that tell the story of a battle won by a Pharaoh riding a horse-drawn chariot. The result is a Pony that preserves the richness and mystery of the many religious artifacts found in the tombs and pyramids of Ancient Egypt.
In the Horse Show world a blue ribbon usually means first place. It is traditionally awarded in recognition of excellence. All serious riders want to add blue ribbons to their collection. In the Painted Pony world a Blue Ribbon Figurine refers to the very first twelve castings of a particular design. First Editions, Numbers 0001 through 0012. Blue Ribbon Figurines are available exclusively on the Official Trail of Painted Ponies Store.
