There are certain values that are held in very high esteem in the City of Porcelain. At Lladró, art is the discovery of these values in the balancing of modernity with tradition, innovation and conservation. This creation, in which two young neighbours greet each other on the road, has proved a perfect subject for our artists. The noble rider and the intrepid driver meet across the divide: on one side the horse stands for the perfection in nature; on the other the automobile represents man's drive to imitate the purity and complexity he finds around him. A perfect balance.
