The story behind the artwork
A circular Limited Edition print featuring a fantastical hot air balloon with a magnificently adorned stallion as pilot. The winged balloon sports a jaunty crown and is bedecked with a menagerie of birds. This print borrows its name from a common Icelandic nursery rhyme:
Afi minn for a honum Raud
Eitthvad sudur a baei.
Ad saekja baedi sykur og braud
Sitt af hvoru tagi.
A loose English translation:
My grandfather took his red horse
Travelling to one of the farms down south.
Getting both sugar and bread
a little bit of both.
This artwork forms one of a complementary pair which look stunning when hung together. Complete the pair.
