Trio of Horses

“Mares of Diomedes” by Gutzon Borglum at Brookgreen Gardens, South Carolina.

Horses race forward, bodies pressed together. All are wildly excited, ears laid back, nostrils distended, and mouths open gasping for breath. The bodies are truthfully modeled without insistent detail to give a dynamic sense of rushing movement, enhanced by the rhythmic play of muscles and the backward flow of loose masses in the manes and tails.
