This is my take on Earth and Air. The colours of Air are yellow and white, and Earth is brown and green.
I imagined a sort of Yin Yang between the two horses:
Yin is associated with low, water, earth, the moon, femininity and night-time.
Yang, is associated with high, fire, sky, the sun, masculinity and daytime.
In China, in Daoist belief,
天 (tian), meaning sky or heaven, is associated with light, the positive, male, etc., whereas 地 (di) meaning earth or land, is associated with dark, the negative, female, etc.
I included the rain, because in ancient Vedic pantheon, Dyausa (Sky) Pita impregnates Mother Pritvi with rain, which gives birth to all vegetations and greenery.
I hope you like it
