This animal's desire for freedom makes this a powerful piece that will not go unnoticed by the spectator. It is also like an open window into the sculptor's studio as it shows us a piece captured in the middle of the creative process. Such is the strength of this sculpture that it is capable of conveying feelings that transcend what is depicted. It is an invitation to dream of those goals we wish to fulfill, goals that will require all our strength and determination, just like the animal trapped in the rock.
Sculpturally speaking, the piece stands out for the realism in the treatment of the animal's anatomy. Everything in this rampant horse - the tension of its muscles, the strained neck, the mane blowing in the wind - captures the animal's struggle to free itself. In sharp contrast with all that energy is the smooth softness of the texture of the rock, even further reinforcing the sensation of power and dynamism expressed by the horse itself. 19.75 x 14.25
