Liberty is a perfect example of sculptor Veryl Goodnight's understanding of both the physical characteristics and innate nature of horses, one of man's most important companion animals.
As Goodnight says in her book, No Turning Back: The Art of Veryl Goodnight:
After years of studying the anatomy of a horse, a dog, a buffalo - I learned that they have the same bones, the same muscles, and the same internal organs as humans.
Through hours spent with many animals, I have seen them love, hate, and grieve just as we do. I watch them communicate in ways humans cannot comprehend. And I know that I have a soul, so do they.
