I have always admired the beauty of the Gypsy Vanner horse. The strong, stocky bodies, the beautiful piebald markings, and the amazing, thick manes and tails. What a stunning breed. I intentionally gave this sculpture a strong, arched neck and a large head, partly to really show off that mane, and partly for the simply elegant pose.
– Measures 10 inches long by 7 1/2 inches tall by 3 inches wide, making this my largest horse sculpture to date.
– Made with 17 gauge steel fencing wire and 16 gauge dark annealed wire, as well as some 19 gauge dark annealed wire for the detailed areas of the horse. I really loaded this horse down with embellishments, because the Gypsy Vanner horse often has a very thick, full, beautiful mane – some even touch the ground!
Thank you for looking. I hope you like this. 🙂
