"The Gift Horse"
Artist: Sheryl Hibbs

This horse features gift boxes with name tags of the students at the Memphis Oral School for the Deaf, where it is displayed. The horse also has a green cochlear implant, a device which can allow a deaf person to hear by transmitting sound waves directly to the brain.

Names of some of the school's students adorn the horse's gift boxes.
The school's horse is, like its students, deaf. The cochlear implant is the green device behind the horse's ear.
