As like all his other work, it is quite large in size and is all metallic with no additional paint. By not adding additional colour, it allows it to be fully captures the amazing streampunk sculpture and how well made it is. The horse was accurately built to replicate the movement and shape of a real horse. The realism of this sculpture was created by the balance of objects used in the sculpture and creates a sense of stability.

"I'm definitely interested in creating a cohesive body of work in which each animal/sculpture fits into a larger alternate reality. I'm also fascinated and inspired by robots and intricate machinery of all kinds. So, a bit of both I'd say."
