The Faces of the Wind

'The wind of heaven is that which blows between a horse's ears' says an Arab proverb.  Horses become the closest friends and comrades with human, throughout the history. They respond generously to every need of people. They become mounts, crossing roads and mountains, giving back to the lives of nomads and relieving their burden. They don’t spare their flesh, milk and they add power to the power of mankind. It is known that the first domestication of horses was in Asia. However, horses have an important place in every aspect of life in Ancient Greece and Roman Empire. We can see the importance that the Greek and Romans give to horses in their sculptures and mosaics. They wear wings and they called Pegasus, sometimes depicture with horns and they take name; Unicorn. Sometimes it becomes Centaur, which integrates with human beings. The epics of Homer are full of stories of legendary horses.
