Simon Phiri – Arab Horses

This beautiful black and white painting created in pencil is by the Zimbabwean artist, Simon Phiri.  It is a rich and beautiful pencil portrait of two Arab horses.  This frame is a contemporary silver foil moulding which has a translucent quality, reflecting both light and subtle colours.

The double mounts were carefully chosen to compliment the colours within the painting – the black inner mount is a little unusual in that it has a lustred effect and is textured, which picks up the texture of the paper and sheen on the coat of the black horse.
