Bronze sculpture details
Where in this wide world, other than in a horse, can man find nobility without pride, friendship without envy, or beauty without vanity? Here where grace is laced with muscle and strength by gentleness confined. He serves without servility; he has fought without enmity. There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent; there is nothing so quick, nothing more patient. These words of Ronald Duncan’s echo my intention whenever I portray horses in a picture or figure.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
Gabriele Haslinger grew up on her parents' farm on Lake Constance. She began painting all kinds of animals on stall walls and in her school note-books when she was still a small girl.
