About Bubbles...

Sculpture by Karen Kasper
Painted by Tina Hillstrom aka, Artist Tina O

Donated by the Richard & Georgiann Ames Family Foundation to
City of Hope Cancer Center | Phoenix, AZ

This majestic Arabian Horse has been created and painted for the Richard & Georgiann Ames Family Foundation, symbolizing the essence of vitality, the jubilant effervescence of life-sustaining oxygen. The “bubbles” are representative of a flute of champagne or the spheres of air in a Pelegrino, as we raise our glasses to toast the noble cause of vanquishing cancer and celebrating life. Bubble is also shaded pink in honor of the 2023 Ames Family promotional campaign “Trot Like A Girl” which raised money in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness.

This Arabian statue is part of the Arabian Horses for Humanity project created to bring a life-size artistic rendition of the world’s oldest breed of horse to communities around the world to highlight the beauty and human horse bond that is intrinsic to the breed. For thousands of years the Arabian horse has united people of all cultures and nationalities through its innate ability to interact with humans and help them move forward in life, as it has been since the beginning of time, and to bring people from all walks of life together in a shared goal and appreciation of these unparalleled horses that have the ability to change lives.
