Inspiring River Horse Sculptures

For the world’s largest art competition ArtPrize in Grand Rapids, Michigan, cancer survivor Richard Morse created this installation called “Stick-to-it-ive-ness: Unwavering pertinacity; perseverance.”

The nine life-size horses are made of dead apple trees trying make their way up the river.

“The visual representation of horses running on the river’s surface, symbolize the struggles and perseverance, the simple grace yet powerful attitude that everybody needs in difficult situations. The title came about as a life lesson: since surviving stage 4 cancer, I don’t take life for granted anymore.” - Richard Morse
