    This small horse sculpture (measures 12cm) is based on an original from ancient Greece that dates to the 8th century BC, currently on show at The Guimet Museum in Paris.

    Its geometric style is typical of the period. This was the age when art form were expressed by simplifying figures, a style borrowed from geometry. Although the human figure sometimes suffered from this treatment, the morphology of the horse lent itself well to this style.

    Most artists working at the time produced geometrically-styled horse sculptures similar to this one and there are numerous examples in museums around the world. Each artist however created slightly different versions according to their particular talents.

    This horse evokes the work of Corinthian artists, but the gentler lines seem to indicate that it is an adaptation of the Corinthian model, perhaps made in a workshop of northern Greece.
