The first light of dawn seems to bathe this work with wilful abandon. Celebratory in mood the frolicking horses connote to the joy of a new day. Aslam with each stroke builds the impasto to evoke the transition from darkness to light in the hues of blue and white he uses, the ochre body of the main horse giving the gravitas of earth to the blues and whites of the sky and clouds, the themes of an entire landscape playing out through his steeds.
