Oliver is the creation of Imogene Robinson who won "Best in Show 2011" with him in the juried student art show "Secrets and Lies." The plaque on his front reads:
“Oliver with a Twist”
Secrets and lies are the objects of the corrupted. However, horses are one of the only incorruptible beings on Earth. They are simple in composition, transparent in their emotions. Oliver, here, is composed of objects as simple as cardboard and as clear as plastic bottles. No secrets or lies lurk as shadows within Oliver; for light shines through him.
