The Trickster

My newest custom Painted Pony is finished! I've been wanting to paint this one for a long time. The Native Americans called the raven the Trickster. In their stories he created everything except the sun, moon and stars which he stole by playing tricks on the tribe that possessed them. On this pony he is hanging the stars in the sky. I've found the tiniest Swarovski Crystals - one is in his mouth, 2 for the pony's eyes, one on the feather on the base and one on the ponies hind quarters. They really sparkle in the sun!
