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 )

My god, that is an insanely phenominal sculpture. Honestly and truely frickin' awesome. I don't even know what words to utilize to describe how awesome I think it is. 83 You're awesome for creating it, too. Love the detail and creativity. (Especially for utilizing your own hair for the mane and tail. ;) )

I've had a couple offers, but they've been too far away to ship safely (the wax will melt) He's also my baby, haha, so I'm not letting it go for less than $3,000.

Hi, sorry for the late reply!

Well firstly I live in Australia, is that too far??

Secondly, as wonderful as he is I cannot currently afford to spend $3000+ on a piece of art ;)

Thanks!

Best piece in your gallery. Hope you do more in this style. Tragic that there's no simple way to mold/cast this, so you can do an edition. Just outstanding. The media, the composition, the coarse base, the overall rawness of the piece. Bravo. :beer: Make more, would ya?
