The horse has a been a favorite subject of artists for centuries. Man's first attempt to portray the horse in art was probably in prehistoric times when they were drawn on cave walls. As world cultures developed, horses were depicted in pottery, sculpture, painting, mosaics and other art forms. An inspiring symbol of strength, freedom, power and beauty, the horse was vital in agrarian economies before the Industrial Revolution. Farmers used them to clear land and plow fields. Cowboys and shepherds used them to herd cattle and sheep, while city folk depended on them for delivering goods. Artists also portrayed horses in scenes of leisure like horse racing, polo or simply romping in a scenic pasture.
