This is a beautiful and rare art piece from Mexico. This type of metalwork originated in Spain and has been perfected by the artists of San Miguel de Allende. These pieces require a lot of imagination and painstaking detail to cut and solder the metal pieces together in a filigree work of art. The shape on this horse is amazing, as is all the detail in the cut and soldered patches of mixed brass and copper.
The reflections in the room make it look like more colors.. But it is all brass and copper. And the mane and tail are intricate wonders. It measures 14 x 13 1/2 x 4.
