<p>Exclusive to the British Museum: a large sculpture based on the Horse of Selene on display in the Museum. The sculpture measures 40cm tall by 30cm wide. <br /> <br /> 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. <br /> <br /> This 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 taught over the flat plate of the cheekbone. <br /> <br /> This piece is made in plaster where as the original is in marble. The piece was hand sculpted by Stuart Wiggins and has been reproduced by Revival Arts of Bath in the UK. <br /> <br /> Exclusive to the British Museum, this inspired piece is made in England by Revival Arts of Bath. <br /> </p>

Exclusive to the British Museum, a large replica of the majestic Horse of Selene.

Crafted in in the UK, the plaster replica sits on a solid dark base.

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

The sculpture captures the very essence of the enervation felt by a beast that has spent the night drawing the chariot of the moon goddess 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 plane of the cheekbone.

A handsome home gift inspired by ancient Greece.
