This is a reproduction of a bronze horse which formed part of a votive offering representing a four-horse chariot, probably dedicated by a charioteer who had won a race. It was found at the panhellenic sanctuary of Zeus in Olympia and is now in the museum there. The original dates to ca 470-460 BC and is probably the work of an Argive workshop.
It cast for us, in Greece, using the traditional 'lost wax' method. As nothing is mass-produced, there will inevitably be slight variations in patination and colouring. Each piece is, therefore, unique. The base is made of marble.
