This is a beautiful bronze sculpture of a Philly and a colt. The Philly stands majestically in front of the colt; he is a fully grown and has amazing muscle tone and height and also has great detail on his body and face. The colt stands half his size, still a little wobbly on his new legs, his mane falls slick against his neck as it hasn't grown in fully yet. The ground is detailed with tree stumps and shrubbery. He playfully follows the colt around as if he is the annoying little brother. The facial expressions that both of this horses express are precious as well as moving, making them feel lifelike. This is a handmade sculpture and is 100% bronze with a brown patina. Cast using the ancient "Lost Wax Method" it stands on a solid black marble base. The bronze base that sculpture sits on has a gorgeously detailed trim that meets at the marble base. This sculpture is signed by the artist Milo.

World famous sculptor "Milo" is the artistic partner of the Lynn Forbes School of Sculpture-and is offering an exclusive signature in the wax of every piece of his items, which are Custom Cast with European Bronze Finery. In effect it makes EACH SCULPTURE an ORIGINAL since each one is different than the next (similar to a Limited Edition). Again, Milo-our partner-IS THE ORIGINAL SCULPTOR of this incredible work of art. Milo was born in Paris in 1939; Milo lived most of his childhood in Andalusia, Spain. Influenced by an artistic family background, he began sculpting at the age of seventeen. After apprenticing with several accomplished sculptors both in America and Spain, he began his own work focusing equally on steel and bronze. Horses and other animals were a natural direction of his work to follow. As a child he was surrounded by horses and witnessing the fighting bulls of Spain gave him an instinct for the inherent drama of these animals. Combining a special cement mixture with steel has allowed him the fluidity of metal with the timelessness of stone. This process enables him to capture the essence of the animal's nature. The characteristic rough texture and movement of line make Milo work easily identifiable in both cement and bronze.

Item delivered very promptly and packaging looked very professional, however I noticed some damage to bottom corner and when inter box was removed the bottom corner was noticeable damage . When item was removed the marble base was cracked in the center front front to back and looked fresh. Would appreciate hearing from you promptly as this was purchased for Christmas gift
