This is a “parade” of artist Peter Stilton’s horses, based on his love of the four horses possibly 2,000 years old, which ended up on the facade of St. Mark’s Cathedral in Venice. They assume wings, pull Apollo’s chariot, and even become knights as chess pieces, and play a piano at the end of the video. The complex media combinations require camera movement to observe the reflectivity of gold leaf, overlays on plexiglass, and other unusual techniques.
