The Wooden Horse is a surreal and enigmatic scene where a wooden swinging toy horse is being watched by a man and two women. Bergner’s impression of the poem by Nathan Zach, “Michael the Wooden Horse,” led him to create this symbol of childhood and the longing for it. The watching figures’ big dark gazing eyes are a recognized trademark of Bergner. These eyes are not only the windows to the soul but also echoes to the large window openings the figures stand at. They observe the horse behind a mysterious brick façade but instead of it being an exterior wall to a house, it is a ghostly façade with an open field behind it. The bewildered setting enhances the ambiguous sense of this indoor/outdoor work.
