Description
This small sculpture of a horse jumping onto a rock is carved of genuine lapis. The dramatic climbing movement is beautifully depicted by the elegant curvature of the long, graceful neck, arching joints of the legs, and the tilted head. The wavy hair and tail also add to the drama of the animal's action. This horse generates energy and an impression of gracefully swift movement. The shades of bright blue of the lapis outlines the motion and the arching contours of the body, creating a mystical feeling. People have long considered horses as magical beings because of their symbolic connotations with the cosmos and the unconscious realm. During ancient times, horses were even endowed with certain powers of divination. This beautifully carved horse reveals a timeless, mystical quality. - (PF.2935)
