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. \:\)

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! \:D )

...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.



Let's go back to the horse.

This thread sounds like a parish council meeting in an episode of "The Vicar of Dibly". \:D 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? ;\)

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. ;\)

Well, it shows that MY personality is one of total and utter suggestibility, because now the darned thing looks like a dragon to me. \:D

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. \:D )

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!!!
