The Horse Monster

03099 2015-10-04 CNB15 Seahorses d2+
Sea horses constitute the genus hippocampus, or horse sea-monster, so-called because they appear to be a hybrid of a horse’s upper body with the lower body of an fish or dolphin. The specimens shown in today’s three images are work by Emic (Fb | Web) – who also did We Borrow The Earth From Our Children — on ‘harbour promenade’ next to the Big Fish.
For one of the models (and more stunning sea horses), see #2 in this gallery of seahorses and seadragons.
