Interpretation of the horse-and-rider theme, and its historical significance, varied considerably. After World War II, the theme evoked for Marini a symbol of mankind's twilight—the human figure representing ecstasy and at the same time tragedy, the horse representing nature's unrestrained forces. Before World War II, however, Marini's equestrian was intended to appear timelessly serene and symbolic of man's universal search. Yet no one interpretation exhausts the image, just as Marini seemingly did not exhaust the variety of materials and textures used to create it.
