"The Flying Horses" by Antonio Signorini
"I dedicate The Flying Horses to the region. This collection has been created as a journey that has no end, exploring the infinite relationship between art and the essence of horses. `The Flying Horses’ display an impossible balance, disobeying gravity. They are flying, like the light of the stars, coming from far away. Their origin is a mystery, as is their destination. They are captured soaring through the atmosphere, traversing from one world to another in their flight across space and time.

Paola Myriam Visconti, the founder of 71 StructuralArt, said, "The UAE is a hub for creativity and a place of artistic inspiration. Not only are artists like Antonio Signorini able to create their sculptures here in a city full of life, they are also able to use art as a communication tool; engaging with the community through art events allows artists to promote the essence of art, and highlights the importance of investing in the education of aspiring artists in the region."
Kawthar bin Sulayem, Emirati serial entrepreneur and founder of KBS Communications, said, "The UAE art scene is growing exponentially. As an Emirati entrepreneur, I am devoted to the development of the art industry in the UAE; I believe that through investment from the private sector and support from entrepreneurs, art will continue to boom across the region, which will lead to the advancement of art engagement from a grassroots level and beyond and subsequently, increased career opportunities for talented Emiratis."
