Description

 

The Sport Of Kings
This water color painting was taken from a photo reference that I took at the Las Colinas Polo Club many years ago in Irving, Texas. The game of polo is fast, furious, and not for the weak of heart. I has been called the “Sport Of Kings” for centuries. The modern game of polo is derived from Manipur, India, where the game was known as ‘Sagol Kangjei’, ‘Kanjai-bazee’, or ‘Pulu’. It was the anglicized form of the last, referring to the wooden ball that was used, which was adopted by the sport in its slow spread to the west. The first polo club was established in the town of Silchar in Assam, India, in 1833.
