Original illustration of "Fast Flew the Black Winged Horse," by Howard Pyle for his children's book "The Garden Behind the Moon"

People wonder what's on the other side of the moon. In Howard Pyle's story, David—a dreamy young boy—finds out. Once there he meets the man in the moon, discovers a magical garden, rides a winged horse, battles a terrible iron man, rescues a princess and brings lost treasures back to earth. Although Pyle's illustrations for the book were painted in black and white, one only needs to read his story to see the colors he envisioned. Pyle's story weaves elements gleaned from classical mythology and fairy tales together with his own vast imagination to create a masterpiece of children's literature.

The horse and figures in this diorama are hand-sculpted originals.
