Da Vinci Horse

9” High Bronze
Edition 500

In 1484, Leonardo da Vinci was commissioned to sculpt a colossal horse in Milan, Italy. He finally finished the 24” high earthenware model 14 years later. In the ensuing period, Italy and France went to war, and all the available bronze was used for cannons and cannonballs, consequently there wasn’t any bronze to cast the horse. Shortly thereafter, France invaded Italy and occupied Milan. The French archers used Leonardo’s clay horse for target practice and totally destroyed it. His sketches were all that remained.
