The statuette belongs to the series known well by the bronze horses of geometrical style which count among the most delicate creations of the Greek bronze-smelters of the VIIIth century BC It is the age where the forms of the art, wherever they are graphic or plastic, express themselves by the simplification of faces(figures) borrowed(taken) from the geometry.
By its scale, its speed(look) and its proportions, by the profile of the head and the legs, this beautiful object evokes the specimens of the artists of Corinth. But the character eased by certain plastic accents gives to think that it is about an adaptation of the Corinthian model realized maybe in a workshop(studio) of northern Greece.
