“Horses with Face Armor?”

“For Spain, Glory and Gold”30″ high x 17” wide x 16″deep. Edition of 30. This piece has been in the clay for about two years, and is finally comin’ around….maybe!

Then again, maybe it’s me that’s comin’ around.
This is fun to see. I love obscure history. Here’s some examples of authentic armor used for horse heads, hundreds of years ago. With my posting the sculpture of the conquistador, I thought I’d better back it up….for the doubters.

  
  


The Fringe Side of the Old West

In the studio. Still a month to go on this bad boy. 

I love the fringe side of the old west. Truly, conquistadors roamed the North American continent centuries before a cowboy ever through a loop over a steer. 
“For Spain, Glory and Gold”
Below,  I included a video with this post. I pray it works, as I would like to include more in future posts.
