The Carmel Horse...

Carmel horse--full body Cafesjian's Carousel has three horses carved by Charles Carmel, a noted carver working in the Coney Island style. The one on the outside row is a favorite of many people. Typical of the Coney Island style, this horse has a slender body, expressive face, and dramatic mane. Also: a bit of armor including fishscale saddle blanket, and a wolf or dog head at the cantle.
