Horses are universal. They seem to speak to everyone. I never grow tired of making them with wire. Their effortless grace and beauty is a joy to try to capture in art.
This is Arabian Spirit. Though I usually go for long, romantic manes and tails in my work, I decided to keep to the Arabian breed of horse by keeping the mane and tail sleek and fine and a bit shorter to show the graceful curve of the neck.
Arabian Spirit is made with copper and dark annealed wires in a blend to suggest the dark socks and muzzle of the horse. The ears are wing-shaped embellishments, and the mane and tail are a fine black chain.
This horse measures 6 inches tall by 8.5 inches long by 3.5 inches wide.
