Description

Beautiful black Vlaamperd horse, illustrated on a map of South Africa, has been printed on high-quality paper and sealed to a wooden Christmas ornament. The design has been printed on high-quality paper and adorns the front of this ornament. The opposite side has the name of the breed and some information about it. Both sides have been attached to the wooden ornament and sealed with two coats of sealer. Comes with a natural jute hanger and is ready to display for the holidays or all year round, because there’s no day that isn’t perfect for ponies!

My name is Liz and I love to illustrate animals on vintage maps that depict where the animal breed comes from. I started this series with horses, and have recently branched out to dog breeds as well. I am now also drawing some of my favorite creatures from mythology and folklore on maps as well. Horses are still my number one art passion, though, and I love to use my art to teach about the breeds of horses and their history and impact on our world.

The Vlaamperd, SA Vlamperd or Vlamperd is a very rare horse breed developed in the Western Cape region of South Africa. It was a cross between the Friesian, Thoroughbred, Hackney, Cape Harness horse, and assorted heavy warmblood breeds on smaller Cape horses. In the Afrikaans language, “Vlaamperd” literally translates as “Flemish horse,” in reference to its roots in the Friesian breeding of Belgium and the Netherlands. The stallions are always black, though mares may be dark brown. They are used for both riding and work in harness.

The original of this drawing was created by me on a vintage map using ink, colored pencil, and acrylic paints. The art on this ornament is a high-quality print of the original art. Both sides are sealed with at least two coats of acrylic sealer (that is rated for outdoors, but please don’t take a chance and hang your ornament out in the rain where it might get ruined!)
