BRONZE FRONT HORSE

The original horse, of which only the front part remains, was dedicated to Athena ca 490-480 BC and is now in the Akropolis Museum in Athens. Symbol of wealth and status. Horses were integral to a thriving economy and an essential part of victorious warfare. Figurines have been found in abundance in ancient Greek religious sanctuaries, where they would have been sold to visitors to leave as offerings to the gods. This figure, as with all our other bronze items, are cast in Greece, using the traditional 'lost wax' method, therefore each piece is unique. It was made in Greece, stands 20 centimeters high, 10 centimeters width, and weighs approximately 1 kg.
