When about 10 years ago, for the first time, I entered an abandoned and ruined building, which was the former Evangelical church in Żeliszów, my spirit was filled with its magic. Unique, difficult to put into words, creative magic. My imagination of a little girl exploded with things that could exist inside. Even though the interior was in absolutely tragic condition and the structure of the building was in danger of collapsing, that what was born in me have danced wildly but softly, slowly working on small dream: to let the world see what I saw under my eyelids.
The horse as the embodiment of strength but also gentleness, beauty, majesty and freedom was perfect spirit of this unusual monument. After years of renovations, different projects, successes and problems to the imagination in my mind, the horse began to be accompanied by the human aspect. Spirit that can show power of belief and dreams. Power of not giving up.
Finally, this very first project from the “Pearl’s dreams”, took place. I’m truly grateful to everyone who made it with us. Who also feel the Perl’s Magic.
Katarzyna Okrzesik-Mikołajek who is amazing horse photographer able to capture them in natural and dignified form, who has also dreamed for years about creating in the Pearl with these stunning animals.
Wonderful horses and whole great horse crew – La Pattat Dutka & Franczak Horse Show, who show lovely relationship with horses on professional level, who traveled hundreds kilometres for this project.
Your Heritage Foundation crew – people who haven’t given up for years in bringing life back inside those almost dead walls.
Impossible doesn’t exist.
Patience is a superpower.
Never stop dreaming.
