Hand-carved by an Italian stone mason, this quaint limestone horsehead has excellent proportions. The contour of the cheek, the thick mane, and the slightly open mouth give the head a sense of realism. Carved with amazing precision, the horse can stand upright (face up) without the aid of a stand. Of course, it can also be hung on a wall in the proper orientation. Decorative horse heads of this size were often seen hanging on the exterior wall of a horse barn.

CONDITION: Good condition with minor nicks, rubs, and fleabites. Two mounting holes on rear. Stone is a natural material that can become darker or lighter from the elements. Please see photos for details.
