Horse Power

Zadok Ben-David, Horse Power, 1999, bronze, steel plinth, H 260 cm:

“The form of the horse is taken from an eighteenth or nineteenth-century volume of anatomical illustrations, but is shown, ironically, as a monument to power and glory. The form of the horse, being made as flat fretwork is a shadow rather that a full three-dimensional body, emphasising Ben-David’s concept of the ultimate immaterial nature of grandeur.”
