Dala Horse: First Snow Giclée Print


Matted Giclée Print of Dala Horse: First Snow


Originating in the province of Dalarna, Sweden, the Dala Horse (Swedish Dalahäst) is a brightly painted wooden horse that has come to symbolize Sweden as a whole. Originally they were unpainted, but the Falun copper mine in the area produced a number of pigments, including the tomato-red that proved the most popular color for the horses. Later the fanciful saddle and designs were added in the popular style known as rosemåling (the Norwegian term) and kurbits (Swedish).

Do you remember the delight of the first snow? Some years it comes in October, while others not until December. Whether it’s just the first flurries one can catch on one’s tongue, or the first morning waking up and the world is blanketed in pristine white, there’s something magical about the first snowfall of the season.

Giclée prints are printed on certified archival cotton rag.

All prints are matted; an 8×10 print comes in a mat to fit an 11×14 frame, and 11×14 matted prints fit a 16×20 frame.
