A small sculpture inspired by the Horse of Selene in the British Museum collection. The sculpture measures approximately 19cm x 12cm and may be used a book end (it has one flat side).
Originating from the East Pediment of the Parthenon (a temple building from ancient Greece famed for its marble sculptures), the Horse of Selene sculpture dates to 447-432 BC and represents one of the horses from the Chariot of Selene, the goddess of the moon. Its appearance of exhaustion - drooping jaw and flaring nostrils - expresses its utter weariness after the nights work.
Exclusive to the British Museum, this inspired piece is made in England by Revival Arts of Bath.
