This small bronze horse stands with a naive charm. Its basic physical form is simple, with a slim torso and elongated legs. Carefully looking at this small horse, one can feel the honest naiveté of the person who made this figure of an animal with which many people interacted in ancient Greece. The slightly curved tail, hair on the neck, and elongated face are carefully depicted. The most interesting feature on this figurine of a horse is the legs, emphasized by their length and thickness. The sculptor has here successfully captured the crucial essence of a horse, contained in a small bronze that can be held in the palm of the hand. - (FZ.325)
