The original Hellenistic bronze statues, 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 is now in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens. They are among the very few surviving large-scale bronze sculptures from antiquity.
This bronze group is 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. Also, please allow for variations of a millimetre or two from the specified height. The composition is mounted on a marble base.
