In Lakota Sioux mythology the horse is a Thunder Being who brings storms to Mother Earth. The thunder you hear is the pounding of his hooves. With thunder lightning and rain come change... and change is like a new day. With this in mind Native artist Dyanne Strongbow imagined a thunderstorm centered in the horse's hindquarters breaking up as it moved forward toward his head into the sunny skies of a new day.
