I couldn't find him. All I saw was a hand." She said, "He's under the horse. You have to look really hard. I think the wings confuse people, too." He agreed. "You're right. I didn't even know they were wings. Also, the horse's head looks like it's attached to its stomach. The whole thing confused me. I’m going to go back and look at it again."
