A magnet inspired by the Horse of Selene.

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.
