Hermes Orange Pegase Paysage Shawl 140CM

Quick Overview

This horse is not a creature but a construction: it is designed and assembled. Its head is shown in profile, like a Renaissance portrait. Composed of a series of cut-out panels, it presents a complex, curvaceous, undulating, almost liquid form. Each is drawn in an infinite line, passing imperceptibly from horse to frame, frame to horse. But from another perspective – a bird’s-eye view – we see a horizontal motif: a landscape, in which the horse forms the relief map of hills surrounded by water. Its outlines are contour lines, like Oriental rice fields arranged in terraces, or as if carved into the hillside over time by the receding water. It is an equine landscape.
