Trickster Horse is a unique print; also called a lithograph monoprint. A monoprint, unlike a monotype, is one of a series, so it is not completely unique. The monoprint begins with an etched plate, unlike the smooth plate of the monotype. The image on this etched plate is the underlying image of all monoprints in the series. Monoprints are often thought of as variations on one theme.
The Trickster figure openly questions, disrupts or mocks authority. They are often male characters, and are fond of breaking rules, boasting, and playing tricks on both humans and gods. In mythology and the study of folklore and religion, a trickster is a character in a story (god, goddess, spirit, human, or anthropomorphisation) who exhibits a great degree of intellect or secret knowledge and uses it to play tricks or otherwise disobey normal rules and defy conventional behavior.
