Movement breathes life into a piece of artwork. As we use static lines in a two-dimensional plane, to create motion in artwork implies intentionality.
Mystical Horse conveys the illusion of movement by focusing on the horse's body motion as a whole rather than its individual parts. The horse is also portrayed in a position that juxtaposes the subject in a manner that cannot be replicated by a static pose. When thinking about a horse in this position, we know that it is in a state of motion, hence creating an illusion of physical movement in the artwork.
