The Highest Power, 2005

Richard Zapata Image

DESCRIPTION: (20-foot diameter) This circular floor medallion is located along the Departure Level Concourse.

"The design features three horses flying through the journey of life. The red horse represents the blood of man, the blue horse represents Mother Earth, and the yellow horse represents the power of God.

"Being a naturalized Texan, I believe that an airport truly screams out progress. But, let's not let this new high-tech era allow us to forget where it all started.

"I would like to leave a reminder to the people who pass through our great city and state that transportation started with harnessing nature. The wind, the environment, and the animal.

"In my field of work, I have learned to work with diverse groups by adding my strengths when needed. I know when to lead and when to add my support. For this project, I would lead the eyes of the public through my eyes. My eyes are my hands."

BIOGRAPHY: Born 1956 in Nashville, Tennessee. Zapata is a self-taught artist whose works can be found in many private collections throughout Texas. He has designed conference tables for Gaylord Broadcasting, Dallas and Sundance Co., Sundance, Utah. Zapata currently resides in Dallas, Texas.
