Leonardo da Vinci: Horse Figurine
Leonardo da Vinci spent a lot of time studying the shape and particularly the movement of horses, one of nature's wonders, and in his opinion, nature was the mistress of all masters. He had plans to sculpt a monumental horse but only completed a clay model during his lifetime.
Even during his lifetime, Da Vinci's work was determinative for the High Renaissance's art. As the one artist who always urged others to get their inspiration straight from nature and not from the works of others, he ended up having many followers who worked in his style.
This statue of a horse is taken from his drawings and the drawings of his followers. It includes a colour picture of the original artwork by the School of Da Vinci and a description in multiple languages.

Review by: IÑIGO AZUMENDI RUIZ DE ARECHAVALETAyesterday I received this horse figurine from National Gallery. I can only say that it's more beautiful than I thought it could be. It's really well done, with perfect details. The figurine is really impressive. It was very well packed in perfect conditions and the delivering was really quick. I can only say: British style, British class. Thank you very much indeed.
