Jockey of Artemision

JockeyOfArtemision

I’ve been thinking a lot about the ancient Greek sculpture the Horse and Jockey of Artemision. This rare sculpture is one of the few original Greek bronze to survive being melted down, and that is probably only because it went down in a shipwreck. Like a catchy tune, the sculpture has been running through my mind’s eye and I cannot shake it… so here it is! Take a look 🙂
