Description
Almost all the great civilizations of antiquity prized the horse for its usefulness and its nobility. The pharaohs of Egypt, the kings of Persia, Alexander of Macedon, and the emperors of Rome all depict themselves riding in triumph on horses or in chariots. The horse was the favorite animal of Poseidon, god of the sea. This clay version seems somehow more ordinary, a horse of the everyday world, yet no less charming for it. When Rome was at her height, he perhaps contained a votive gift, left to please some long forgotten deity. - (P.0457)
