You forgot the tiny rider with his two lances out behind him - or is that a scarf?

It takes a while to see, but the white background is actually the continents. smile

I'm sure the artist who spent hours and hours developing the logo for me would be pleased to hear you think it looks like a horse :-)

Ok, I see it too.
But the "horse" is the oceans.
I can post a 2400x2400 pixel version that would be easier to see, but it would be about 20MB

Well, I didn't see the horse until Angelo pointed it out, but now I don't see anything BUT a horse! (thanks a ton, there, angelo! laugh )

...I wonder if you made the continents black and the water white if that would make the horse go away...

I suspect it would just turn it into a white horse ...

It does have rather deformed hindquarters, though.

I think the large version looks like the something from Lovecraft's Cthulhu stories.

This thread sounds like a parish council meeting in an episode of "The Vicar of Dibly". laugh Much fun. (Think the stained glass window episode! Ha!)

I love the logo, Frank.

(I do see the horse now that it's been pointed out and I think it's great!)

Oh yes, a horse in the logo! I love horses. And pianos. Good combination!! Maybe there is also a secret subforum on horse-related discussions? wink

I have ALWAYS seen a horse in the PW logo- even in the big one! Sorry, Frank! LOL I mean, I figured out right quickly what it REALLY was, but I still see a horsie!

I had my older son, who designs such things, look at it last night and he made some comments about balance of the composition. In addition to that, he sees a horse with a rider falling with his arms akimbo to break the fall. I said it was a stiff scarf or crossed lances, he said they were arms - we argued the point. wink

It looks like a Halloween witch waving one of those rhythmic gymnastics ribbons or something in one hand. (I saw that before I read Anthony's post, so I believe he is a person of great mental ability. laugh )

I'm starting to suspect the logo was actually designed by Monica and her colleagues in the psych department and we're all guinea pigs in a piano-oriented Rorschach test. Look for an article in Pianist Magazine that cites this study to analyze phobias and neuroses of adults who take up piano.

Yeow! I'm a rat in a maze! Let me out!!! eek
