There is perhaps no better symbol of the American spirit than the mustang! Mustangs are a cherished part of America’s history, and are beloved for their beauty as well as their grit and resilience. In 1971, the United States Congress declared that “wild free-roaming horses and burros are living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the West.” Another American favorite is fireworks! Fireworks have long been part of American celebrations. When colonists first traveled to the New World, they brought along fireworks – which at that time were called “illuminations.” Illuminations were even used to celebrate the very first anniversary of Independence Day, and have been used so ever since! Created by the artists at Breyer, the mustang and the firework are united in a beautiful ode to Americana! A special limited run of only 3,000 pieces, Illumination is a patriotic and enduring symbol of American freedom and celebration!
