This superb bronze applique of a horse and rider is a solid cast applique. Its flat back clearly indicates that it was fixed to a large metal vase as an applique. The artistic quality of this bronze is remarkable: the surface, finely modeled, juxtaposes well-rounded volumes and depressions on the surface to very naturalistically express the musculature and the movements of the animal. One of the best examples of its type, it was certainly riveted to the neck of a large, archaic bronze crater similar to the one found at Vix (France) but made in Greece.
