About the Design:
"The Stallion of Apple Hill" is a folk art print that draws heavily on Medieval influences. I love this horse's personality, prancing around the apple pasture and thinking he's much fancier than he really is :) The print is made by blending green and gold inks to get a delicate green that has a slight shimmer. This would be a great gift for equestrian enthusiasts.
