Banner is a red roan blanket appaloosa born in 2000 and a remarkable noble horse that served Fernando Andrea to create this striking rendition of a standing horse in the style of traditional animal sculpture. Unlike other equestrian pieces released by Historical Bronzes, there is no rider here but just the beauty of the nude animal in splendorous quietness and elegant simplicity.
As experienced riders know any horse is a unique, differentiated being showing particular character traits, of which most expressive feature is probably the glance, masterfully captured here to produce not just he sculpture of a generic animal but the real portrait of a particular mount now 19 years old and “old timer” born in the USA and seasoned all trough a long life of adventurous riding across many different sceneriesincluding some western movies…CHARACTERISTICS
This bronze is an outstanding piece of sculpture. Cast in the traditional lost wax bronze method in a very limited number, the sculpture would be a centerpiece of many collections.
