❦ Among the Tiv people of Wukari, Nigeria, is a secret society called the Mba Tsav. A man from the Mba Tsav may carry with him an amulet of a rubber horse. This horse is adorned with fabric, and at night may grow to that of a size where the man may mount it. The horse carries its traveller over long distances, rendering him invisible for a long and safe journey, undertaken in order to kill a victim and return unnoticed. My romantically ironic entry for the Cheltenham Illustration Awards, 2012! ♥..And shy way of saying hello to guest judge Tom Gauld, whose work makes me smile and laugh. :) The horses were not said to fly. Turning them into stars is my way of depicting this invisibility.
