Georg Herold is the master of the material in the realm of the conceptual. As it all began with a stick, it has never lost its original conception.
I've got a horse but I still think of him as a pony. He certainly acts like it. Red, named for his sorrel color, is no longer young and he's far from old. That's part of the problem. He's getting too old to train, but he's too young to saddle.
