Description
Stylised bronze with a verdigris patina based on the small statues created during the geometrical period, c. 900 - 700 BC as votive offerings. Horses played a central role in the great civic festivals in the ancient world, such as the Panathenaic Games in Athens and the Olympic games at Olympus, where they took part in chariot races and single horse races. The 5th century Theban lyric poet Pindar immortalises the victories of the horses and riders at the Isthmian, Olympian, Pythian and Neman Greek games in his epinician odes.
