This sculpture is much more traditional and much less "arty" than the Hoya Faces sculptures, but is beautifully made nevertheless.
From the 1970s I think (or early 80s) I find it appealing because it is so serene. Hoya have chosen to model a beautiful specimen of a horse in a less than heroic way, so different to most horse sculptures. It's beauty really works on so many levels.
The posture of the horse, it's evocative modelling, and the quality of the crystal work make it a pleasure to look at. As good as a crystal animal can get for me!
