Warrior on a horse

Price: 24.50€

Warrior on a horse

Bronze handmade warrior on a horse.

Horses were an integral part of life in ancient Greece. They played an active role in warfare, transportation and in the games such as the Panathenaic Games in Athens with its huge contingent of cavalry riders. Athenian enthusiasm for the horse was clearly expressed in the many civic buildings and temples that were adorned with paintings and sculptures of riders and battle scenes showing cavalry such as in the Parthenon friezes. The horse was a symbol of prestige, wealth and status. Social rank has often been defined by the ability to own and maintain a horse.
