clydesdale head, 0.5kg sterling silver, gold plate, rubies (0.4ct total), ostrich feathers, glass
148 x 55 x 85cm
This Clydesdale was donated to me by a friend. He was a beloved pet that had to be put down. I wanted to do something special with him so I gave him an ornate gold plated harness and reins.
Pegasus was the feature work from my last exhibition, Phantasmagoria, which was exhibited at both the Art Gallery of South Australia for the Adelaide Biennial (as an unfinished piece) and then at Sophie Gannon Gallery (in its completion). The wings pictured were painted on the wall in fresco by Leslie Rice so they will not be included in the exhibition.
