The arabian horse is known for its elegance and evanescence. Gives the impression of floating in the air and is the king of light horses. It s a very important symbol of arab history, as well as horseback is a symbol of nobility and chivalry.

The process of creating the structure was based on a study based on the movement of the limbs during trotting horse (gallop). The idea of creating a piece that synthesize the main points involved in locomotion and that through a simple change could also synthesize motion analysis, is taken as a starting point.

A structure capable of flying without wings will wind throught the desert.
