Man on Horseback 50×17×56cm by Paul Gearman


This bronze sculpture depicts a human figure riding a horse and is a simple yet expressive piece.

The texture of the sculpture has the solid feel that is unique to bronze, yet there is a certain lightness to the movements of the horse and the human figure.

Through this work, the artist simultaneously conveys movement and stillness, strength and elegance, making it a brilliant example of his artistic sensibility.
