Winged Horse of the Apocalypse by DragonSpark Winged Horse of the Apocalypse by DragonSpark
Oh, what to say about this piece! It is by far my favorite sculpture so far, and I have decided to sell it to a buyer who will put it in his gallery and appreciate it. It's going to be hard to let it go though.

Materials:
Wax, Wire, String, Hair (my own, before anyone asks. Oh, the sacrifices I make for my art...)

Throughout it's construction this piece has acquired many nicknames and titles, such as Skeletal Pegasus, Zombie Horse, Horse of the Apocalypse, Thestral, and the Grim Reaper's Horse. So I kind of made a combination of some ideas for the title, but it's probably subject to change. I was even thinking "Bearer of Bad News" or "Winged Death." Now I find it's taken on a reference to Durer's "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse."

UPDATE:
I waited too long to call the man back who wanted to buy this piece, and I lost the chance. :( I'm in Syracuse University right now, and it's back home.

And so everyone can stop asking me, it's about 1 1/2 feet in height and length. Not very big, I know. =P

Here are the links to the other 3 angles:

Uniquely crafted, Winged Horse of the Apocolypse looks quite unseely. ~DragonSpark has made one horse I wouldn't want to ride. ( Suggested by scenceable and Featured by oilsoaked )

It looks awesome, but it looks very disturbing. In a good way.
