Description "Riders of the Dawn" by Adolph Alexander Weinman


"The horses plunge forward, half rearing, with forelegs doubled and heads tossing. One rider leans back to draw a bow while the other turns sidewise, blowing a conch. Beneath the horses is the rayed disc of the rising sun, with water curling in scrolls around it and rising beneath the horses in plumes of spray. A heron rides one crest, and two dolphins plunge into a curling wave." (Proske 123-124)
