the horse

replica ancient Greek bronze and marble horse sculpture online and opposite the British Museum

The horse (in Greek: 'hippos') was a very important part of everyday life in ancient Greece, integral to a thriving economy and an essential part of victorious warfare. It was a symbol of honour, energy and success.

Images of the horse abound on pottery and in sculpture. The horse was associated with Poseidon, the elemental god of the sea, and it denotes power, wealth, victory, honour and virility.
