This magnificent Roman bronze cast of a striding horse is the work of Rome’s famed metallurgists. With its head cast down at an angle and its front right leg raised in action, the personality of this horse is perfectly captured in a split second of time. The animal’s muscles are firm and defined on this small figurine, while its short mane and long tail are subtly textured and exquisitely rendered. This piece stands atop a short base of the same bronze and shows only minor wear from age
