PRINT FOR SALE---WHAT DELIGHTFUL IMAGE!
SOARING THROUGH THE SKIES. This is a fantastic image of the Pegasus sign. These flying Pegasus were always a sight to see as they flew high over the service station that used them as their logo.
This is a Fine Art photo of Pegasus. For years it was the logo for Mobil Oil. A flying red Pegasus gestured high above the gas stations where you could find a friendly full car service station. The design of the flying red Pegasus has been modified through the years and now it is no longer used, replaced by an outline of a person with big smile. At one time Pegasus stood for wisdom, especially during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, even becoming a symbol of poetry. Mythological super heroes who could fly through space and time might be understood by movie going audiences, but Mobil Oil wanted to be more personable in its approach to connecting with the general public, so they changed logos in 1984. Besides poetry and gas pumps are worlds away. However, owning this wonderful photo of the giant red Pegasus would brighten any room, its simply an excellent photo.
