Winter Horses by Inferna Campanis

Winter horses in a circular depression within the field where the plants themselves are flattened at the very base. While not unprecedented, they lay consistently a few degrees rotationally out of sink with the magnetic field of the earth and are greatly affected at a cellular level by the energy responsible for their formation.
