Ralph Dorazio Wood Rocking Horse, 1980s

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

The “Rocking Horse” was created by Ralph Dorazio for his great nephew in the 1980s and retained by Chamber for inclusion in the Progressland collection. The
sculptor was motivated by childhood lore and the practice of woodworking, which he divided into three basic elements: materials, tools and procedures. Dorazio believed that by learning these elements, anyone could master the age-old practice of transforming organic wood into objects to share, enjoy and cherish.
