Hand-hammered metal displays an antique copper finish and is embellished with a wavy, hand-cut mane.

Details More than two feet tall, this metal horse head is cut, formed, welded and finished entirely by hand by skillful Indonesian craftsmen. While the basic shape is always the same, the specific forms of the mane, the hammered texture of the metal and the color gradations of the finish will be unique in each piece. The glass ball eyes with metal lids and delicate wire lashes project a soulfulness that belies the simple materials from which they are made.
Beyond the artists’ skill and creativity, this piece is also a testament to their thriftiness and environmental awareness. Rather than working in virgin material, they choose to create their art from reclaimed metal that might otherwise end up in a landfill. What was once a metal drum now has new life as a beautiful work of art.When they ask... This handsome metal horse head sculpture may dominate the average coffee table, but in Falkirk, Scotland, two metal horse heads rise nearly 100 feet above the ground. Created by Glasgow-based artist Andy Scott, The Kelpies pay homage to the working horses of Scotland that once pulled barges along Scotland’s canals and worked in the fields in the area where the sculptures now stand. Towering over a new canal extension which links the Forth & Clyde Canal to the North Sea, The Kelpies are built of structural steel with a stainless steel cladding and opened to the public in April 2014.
