SPEED – Head of a Horse

The equestrian world has been in my blood since I was a young child and now my love of horses has passed on to one of my daughters, so once again the house is filled with equestrian photos and drawings! The animal yard is often a place where I am found sketching horses, trying to capture the essence and movement of this wonderfully graceful animal.

For this equestrian sculpture, I was inspired by the Head of the Horse of Selene from the Parthenon in Greece which has become one of the most widely-recognised and popular of the Parthenon sculptures. Whilst that horse head was carved in marble, I sculpted my horse’s head in clay and have kept the markings from my knife – giving a much more rugged and sculpted finish. I never like the viewer to forget that they are looking at a sculpture first and therefore like to show off the material used.

The finished equestrian piece is of a life size horse’s head and is slightly more stylised than my other sculptures, but with a total focus on the head of the horse. I wanted to capture the horse when he’s out of control, his head is strong, and his ears are back, and his power is beyond human control. The head of a horse can say so much.

This equestrian sculpture can be displayed inside in a large area, ideally at eye level, and its on a Portland stone base, but equally it could rest on a garden wall or be given a plinth of your choice to fit the space it will fill.
