<p>A small sculpture inspired by the Horse of Selene in the British Museum collection. The sculpture measures approximately 19cm x 12cm and may be used a book end (it has one flat side). <br /> <br /> Originating from the East Pediment of the Parthenon (a temple building from ancient Greece famed for its marble sculptures), the Horse of Selene sculpture dates to 447-432 BC and represents one of the horses from the Chariot of Selene, the goddess of the moon. Its appearance of exhaustion - drooping jaw and flaring nostrils - expresses its utter weariness after the night's work. <br /> <br /> Exclusive to the British Museum, this inspired piece is made in England by Revival Arts of Bath. <br /> <br /> <a class="linkarrow" title="Read more about the Horse of Selene" href="http://bit.ly/15l7hAi" target="_blank">Discover more about the Horse of Selene<span class="arrow"></span></a></p>

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

Crafted in in the UK, the reverse side to this highly detailed resin replica is a flat plane, meaning the ornament can be displayed face on, or used as a stylish bookend.

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 striking home gift inspired by ancient Greece.
