Horse Bust Completed

The horse bust is completely finished!


This sculpture captures the past and the present of horses in Langley. It is sculpted out of an old material (wood) remade into something new with modern technology (parallam). Originally used as working animals in lumber, ranching and farming industries, horses have been repurposed for modern industries of equestrian therapeutic riding for the disabled and people with special needs, as well as the competitive world of show horses, with hunter jumper, vaulting, western and English shows. The material is a mass of shredded strips of wood fibers pressed and conformed into a modern, man-made product. The sculpture captures the wild history and the new, tightly controlled structure of the modern horse.

This sculpture is not for sale. It is 23″ tall by 21″ wide on a base of steel custom made by my friend Steve Bennett.
