SKU: RS-Eohippus Categories: , ,


Artist Statement:
I returned to the Eohippus, (dawn horse), only because of the sculpture elements enticed me from my studio bench. Eohippus was the first true horse standing 20“ to the withers 55 million years ago. My piece uses a truck brake shoe as the main structure supporting the chest. The wrenches, machinery and bits comprise the body, legs and head. Lifted above a wooden base, the sculpture flies aloft like a figure from a Currier and Ives 19th century lithograph. The steel elements are heated with an acetylene torch, hammered, shaped and stick welded. After brushing the surface with an electric wire wheel, the surface is coated with Val oil.
