Dala Horse Reflection
When I look at the water, what do I see?
Freckles and speckles reflected back at me?
Do I see my insecurities, my faults, my fear?
Or the potential of what could be, and the dreams I hold so dear?
Originating in the province of Dalarna, Sweden, the Dala Horse (Swedish Dalahäst) is a brightly painted wooden horse that has come to symbolize Sweden as a whole. Originally, they were unpainted, but the Falun copper mine produced red pigment that proved popular for the horses. Later the fanciful saddle and designs were added in the popular Scandinavian style of the 1800’s.
