Set in an 18 karat gold base, this small bronze head of a horse generates a naive charm. Although the physical form of the sculpture is charmingly simple, certain exaggerated features are beautifully defined by the bold contours of the animal. The large eyes are depicted as protruding circular forms on each side of the head, and the mouth is elongated to accentuate the shape of the horse's head. Almost geometrically abstract, the long neck is depicted in an arching shape. It is evident that the sculptor appreciated these predominant features that give the horse its unique appearance. Moreover, the intimate scale of the sculpture embodies the horse's features, which are so curiously engaging. When we look at this sculpture we are visually experiencing the conceptual ideas of the ancient Greek artist. - (FZ.331)
