Through out the play Petruchio compares taming Katherine to animals. To me this image represents the taming of Katherine. Horses are considered very hard animals to domesticate because of their strong personalities, similar to Katherine. The process of taming or domesticating in my opinion is essentially making the animal or person presentable. Just like in the picture, it is more the appearance of the person rather than personality.
Would be a great getting ready wedding shot...except maybe with champagne instead :-) ... Old Hollywood glamour ... Rustic glamorous, country elegance, shabby chic, vintage, whimsical, boho, best day ever
