21st Century Wire and Glazed Paper Horse Head Sculpture by Kris Mongene


A stunning near life-sized sculpture of a horse head. Crafted from a translucent glazed white paper over a copper wire frame, the mane also of copper wire, bent and twisted, as if being blown by the wind. Reminiscent of Inuit seal gut parkas and toys, the sculpture has a haunting graciousness to it.
