Great poster, Brad!
The sculpture, called "Grandfather Cuts Loose the Ponies," is based on a Northwest Native American legend. Even though you can't tell from the freeway on the way to The Gorge, it was never completed:

A distant rumbling strikes the air. Swirling dust motes reach skyward. A dry breeze dances across desolate lands. Thunderheads build and fingers of light split the sky. A breeze becomes a howling wind. Hear the voice of creation! The Grandfather Spirit sends his message across the plains, echoing through the mountains and valleys of Mother Earth:

"Creatures of this planet, behold, a Great Basket! I send this basket, bearing the gift of life, to all corners of the universe. Now take these ponies, I am cutting them loose. They will inspire a Spirit of free will. They will be a companion for work and play on this planet. This is a way for you to see how all life depends on all other life. This basket is my heart. You are at one with me. Eagle of the sky, we look to you for vision. Salmon of the water, we look to you for life-giving sustenance. Deer of the land, you provide a bountiful tranquility for our Mother Earth.

"From the center of my Basket burns the fire of our collective souls. Humans, you are responsible. You have the power of reasoning and the gift of free will. Use them wisely. Always be aware of the limitless nature of this ever expanding universe. Let us live to inspire each other."

Thanks for the post sasquatch it was both educational and entertaining. Glad I managed to snag one off the website as they now appear to be sold out. I will be at Hollywood Bowl tomorrow and I hope the poster will be as nice

Epic shows? The Night 1 second set was short and weak IMO.

Night 1 first set more than made up for the short length of the second IMO. I didn't think set 2 was weak at all but will need to listen again to get reduce my biases. Regardless, my crew had a great time :)

Second night, second set and encore looks pretty nice on paper. I like seeing all of the previous song teases in Antelope. Very old school.

Doc's no-no... Interesting comparison.

Yep. Brought from Spain (though there were horses in North America in prehistoric times).
But they figured prominently in Native American culture and tradition after their introduction.
