    £1650.00 Members' price *


    Exclusive to the British Museum: a large replica of the Horse of Selene on display in the Museum. The sculpture measures approximately 45cm tall by 60cm wide.

    The Horse of Selene is a detail from the east pediment of the Parthenon: a temple building from ancient Greece famed for its marble sculptures. It originates from Acropolis, Athens, and dates to 438- 432 BC.

    The sculpture captures the very essence of the stress felt by a beast that has spent the night drawing the chariot of the moon across the sky. The horse pins back its ears, the jaw gapes, the nostrils flare, the eyes bulge, veins stand out and the flesh seems spare and taut over the flat plate of the cheekbone.

    This piece is hand cast in resin by the British artist Andrew Lilley, using a mould taken from the original.
