The original Hellenistic bronze group, dating to the mid-late 2nd century BC, were recovered from a shipwreck in the sea at Cape Artemision (off the island of Euboea - modern Evia) in 1928 (the horse) and 1937 (the boy jockey) and are now in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens. They are among the very few surviving large-scale bronze sculptures from antiquity.
This piece is cast for us, in Greece, using the traditional 'lost wax' method. The jockey and the horse are cast separately and then mounted on a marble base. As nothing is mass-produced, there will inevitably be slight variations in patination and colouring. Each piece is, therefore, unique.
