Art Stuff - The Horse of Selene

If there was a perfect equine sculpture I would have to rate the beautifully carved marble head of Horse of Selene held in the British Museum as being the one I would choose. the head came from a magnificent marble frieze collected from the Greek Parthenon in Athens by Lord Elgin. The Horse of Selene forms part of a collection referred to as the Elgin Marbles. I did this drawing as a way of learning how the finer details of a horses' head relate to each other and because I just love that sculpture.
