I bought this horse hair angel several years ago in Tombstone, AZ. My friends and I were doing the tourist thing and we spotted this beautiful piece. The horse hair is from the mane and tail of horses that are being groomed. The hair falls out naturally and is collected to be fired into the mold with the plaster, clay or whatever material is used for the piece. This was taken with my Nikon Coolpix P510. Click to enlarge.
I love this angel. Namaste’
