|Visiting The Magician|

My visit to The Magician.
Today I had an opportunity to venture out to visit The Magician. That sounds far more exotic than the trip really was.
I took a trip to Golden, Colorado today, to the Golden Hotel, where The Magician, a Trail of the Painted Ponies statue by Andersen Kee, had found a new home.
The pony sits in the hotel's main lobby, directly across from the registration desk, near the entry into the restaurant. It's a rather magnificent work with wonderful detail depicting an Indian shaman letting forth the ponies under his control.
Sadly the clerks at the front desk did not know much about the pony and were not able to say if the artist was local or how long the pony would be on exhibit.
