Horse head sculpture oil based clay original

8″ x 9″ x 5″  Oil Based Clay
Work in Progress

This oil based clay original is a work in progress for casting in bronze.  One of the best dressage instructors I ever had described the rider’s hands contact with the horse’s mouth through the reins as “light as a feather since the horse’s head is hanging like a chandelier from his poll”.  In layman’s terms this means the rider is in contact with the horse’s mouth for the subtlest of signals, not holding the horse’s head into a flexed position.  When complete the rider’s hands and the bridle and reins will be incorporated.

Contact me if you are interested in this piece when it is completed in bronze.
