An excellent depiction of a horse in motion, this figure is a wonderful example of the Hellenistic preoccupation with movement found in so many of their sculptures. Each of the forelegs are bent, suggesting that the horse was meant to be depicted while galloping. Each of the hind legs are depicted independently, adding to the realism of the piece. The head of the horse is very expressive with eyes and nostrils well delineated, the mouth parted and the head slightly tilted. The mane is stylized and well executed.

In as found condition with natural patina present.

3.09 x 2.10 x .807 inches (7.85 x 5.35 x 2.05 cm)
