NEXT GENERATION is a bust that honors the mare with her foal which I sculpted the base to look like a stack of rocks depict the building blocks of life in a contemporary patina.
And for drama, I completed the series with ARABIAN KNIGHT which is a bust of an Arabian stallion decorated with a patina costume consisting of silver and turquoise beads with tassels. At the Arabian horse shows, they have a competition of horse and rider dressed in Arabian costuming. The rider’s outfits are complimented by the matching adornments on the horse. Fantastic!
With a long flowing mane, tail and feathering, this magnificent cross bread of the Shire and Dale pony by the Gypsy people of United Kingdom are as gentle as they are muscular. The Gypsy people wanted a muscular horse (the Shire) but smaller (Dale pone) to pull their Gypsy wagon called a Vardo.
These horses have beautiful coloration from black & white, brown & white, black and brown, etc. When I first saw this breed in a magazine, they looked like there were whimsy carousel horses.
My first Gypsy Vanner Stallion is GYPSY FIRE in the more common coloration of black & white patina on bronze. I also had this same sculpture cast in Lucite to add a contemporary touch.

Next came GYPSY SPIRIT who is galloping through the fields with flowing mane and tail in brown & white patina.
