Water of Camargue - Painted Box by rieke-b Water of Camargue - Painted Box by rieke-b
10,5 x 10,5 x 5,5cm, acrylic paints on strong cardboard, varnished with acrylic matt varnish.

Camargue horses are a small, very robust breed of domesticated horses indigenous to the Camargue area of southern France where they traditionally live in semi-feral conditions in a harsh environment.
The foals are born black or brown and their fur colour becomes brighter until it’s white with a special silvery gloss when they’re about 10 years old. Camargue horses can eat under water with closed nostrils and have a natural Cow Sense which makes them popular horses for herding cows and bulls. This breed is considered to be one of the oldest breeds of horses in the world.

This painting was inspired by photos from the book “Untamed” by Steve Bloom. It looks very impressive when these horses gallop through water.

This box is something special: On each side, I painted a Camargue horse silhouette running in different speeds (the proportions of this horse breed are correct), so you can turn the box and watch a mini-cartoon.

Camarguepferde sind eine Rasse kleiner, sehr robuster Hauspferde aus der Camargue-Region in Sudfrankreich, wo sie traditionell halbwild in einer rauen Umgebung leben.
Die Fohlen werden braun oder schwarz geboren, aber ihr Fell wird im Laufe der Zeit immer heller, bis es ganz weiß ist (mit einem besonderen silbrigen Glanz) wenn sie etwa 10 Jahre alt sind. Camarguepferde können unter Wasser mit geschlossenen Nüstern fressen und haben einen natürlichen „Cow Sense“, der sie zu beliebten Reitpferden für das Hüten von Rinderherden macht. Diese Rasse gilt als eine der ältesten Pferderassen der Welt.

Dieses Bild wurde von Fotos aus dem Buch „Wilde Tiere“ von Steve Bloom inspiriert. Es sieht sehr eindrucksvoll aus, wenn die Tiere durchs Wasser gallopieren.

Diese Schachtel ist etwas ganz Besonderes: Ich habe auf jede Seite die Silhouette eines in verschiedenen Geschwindigkeiten laufenden Camarguepferdes gemalt (die Proportionen stimmen). Man kann also beim Drehen der Schachtel einen Mini-Cartoon sehen.

Water of Camargue - OOAK Box for sale by ~rieke-b is amazing in realism, creativity and the way the painting integrates all sides of the box. ( Suggested by xthumbtakx and Featured by Talty )

:love: You're making better and better box paintings with every one! All the splashing speckles make a neat frame for the two horses. I never knew that a horse's coat could change color like that. Makes it easier to tell the age of individuals in a herd. ;) Great add with the silhouettes too! Personally I think there's too much blue reflection in their coats (like they're blue horses and not silver ;)). I love how the light splashes are on the sides of the lid!

Aww, hehehe... :blowkiss: Splashing is so much fun! :painter: Camargue horses are awesome, they're really strong and robust for their size!
Oops, that's true. More like blue horses, eh? ^^; It looked so impressive on the photos, so I just added a little more contrast.
