The spirit of a people finds its most direct, authentic expression in its folklore. Beliefs, know-how, songs, storytelling and mythology are handed down from generation to generation, as the living embodiment of a people's origins, particularities and history. Drawing on popular Russian and Polish imagery, mixed freely with motifs from his own imagination, Henri d'Origny's design is an appeal to the Slavic soul, while at the same time expressing his own deep attachment to the equestrian arts. Flowers and stylised birds, bright colours and branching forms are framed with harness straps and braidwork in this joyous, multicoloured design.
