Description


Very nice reproduction of the horse head Selene, currently on display at the British Museum. 
This statue represents the real size of an ancient Roman era horse (140cm / 150cm at the withers) which was smaller than our current horses. 
The size of the statue itself is exactly 75cm high by 75cm in length. With its metal display: 80cm high.
This fragment is part of the reconstruction of the eastern pediment of the Acropolis Museum: it represented the birth of Athena emerging fully armed from the head of Zeus, other gods present at the scene; to the left corner, the chariot of the Sun (Helios) emerges from the ocean to mark the appearance of the day, in the right corner, the chariot of the Moon (Selene) pulled by horses plunged into the ocean. 
As much of the Parthenon sculptures, the head is in the British Museum.
Made of solid composite and hand-patinated by hand for a perfect reproduction of the old stone. 
Protected against the elements and the sun, this statue of Selene's horse head can be positioned outside.
