Commissioned Bronze Sculpture of 1 Unique
The specification for the sculpture was: 3 galloping horses!
The history of the sculpture emerged during the modeling and goes like this:
There are also rules for a “RUN FOR FUN”, that is, a joyful gallop in a field. Unwritten law: the lead mare (right) goes ahead and shows the way, even if a younger mare is moving almost at the same height as here. The latter gallops carefree and full of joy, her head high in the wind and turns a little to the left, because she feels that “Troubles” are quickly approaching from behind. A young stallion allows himself the offence to gallop between the two mares and seize the lead. But he did not expect the immediate, resolute reaction of the lead mare. She anticipates the provocation and turns her body to the left in his way and with her head turned towards the intruder, her ears put to the side and her eyes angrily directed at the young stallion, she successfully fends off the attack.
This is the snapshot that I captured with this sculpture.
