Etruscan Inspired




"Horses and dogs have been man's most intimate and faithful companions since the dawn of history, but the horse has certainly been the most useful. In sport, agriculture, transport and warfare, the horse has contributed more to human pleasure, ambition and progress than any other animal." ~ Prince Phillip

Your painted pony is very beautiful; stunning. I have an Etruscan horse figure much like your 2nd photo. I got it in 1976 during a trip to Greece with my father. All this time and I never really realized what it represented. Now I know.
