    We saw this painting by E. Martin Hennings at the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis and it really spoke to us.


    First, the gas dispensers look a little like a side-view of a supercharger.

    It's interesting that the horses have the widest color diversity compared to the automobiles. Not that you breed horses for colors but it clear that the early-adopters of the automobile weren't doing so because of the color choices.

    You can't help get the feeling that you're looking at the confluence of two ways of life at a specific point in time. Then you take a step back and realize that the same story is playing out right now at all the superchargers scattered around the world.

    The Eiteljorg is a great museum by the way with a large collection devoted to Native American culture. Highly recommended.
