Spirit of the Tao

This is my entry for the Digital Whisper challenge where we were given this beautiful image of a horse and I thought of the wonderful horse images from the illustrated Tao Te Ching. The horses are a bit more stylized in Asian art but they often depict wild , muscular animals which this image conveys. I added overlays of Asian symbols and text and used color from some vintage Oriental stickers for added texture. Background from scrapbookgraphics.
