Horse race is a piece full of energy, and at the same time outstanding for its technical complexity.
The sculptor of the piece is a great connoisseur of the world of horses, and author of many other Lladró horse pieces (like the Arabian Pure Breed).
Inspired by such famous horse races as the Epsom Derby (UK) or the Kentucky Derby (USA), the sculptor has not only faithfully reproduced the anatomy of this thoroughbred horse, but he has also captured all the excitement, speed and energy of the race in a technically difficult composition.
The horses seem to be suspended in the air, and to achieve this visual effect, a thorough meticulous previous study was required. Both horses are joined together, one is connected to the wooden base that acts as a support. It also serves as the counterweight that guarantees the stability required by a piece of this size and characteristics.
