In ancient Greece the horse was a symbol of wealth and status. Horses were integral to a thriving economy and an essential part of victorious warfare. Figurines have been found in abundance in ancient Greek religious sanctuaries, where they would have been sold to visitors to leave as offerings to the gods.
This horse has been cast for us, in Greece, using the traditional 'lost wax' method. He is decorated with finely incised geometric motifs as shown below.
As nothing is mass-produced, there will inevitably be slight variations in patination and colouring. Each piece is, therefore, unique.
