Ms Saito spent time in Sweden and fell in love with their textiles and handcrafts including the dala or dalarna horse. This carved wood and painted horse statue has become a image synonymous with Sweden and specifically the Dalarna providence in which statue originated. Originally made as toys for children, they embody the joy of children at Christmas and gift giving.
