I sculpted this in limewood.
It was designed to go above a fire place and looks as if the Horse was jumping through the wall.
I mounted it on a piece of quarter sawn oak which I carved to have a rippled effect. Almost as if the horse was jumping through a wormhole.
I stained the limewood very, very dark and then polished it.
This was the first time I had studied a horses anatomy and it is an in depth subject.
I enhanced certain feature and muscles in order to catch the light more effectively.
