You may be familiar with Leonardo da Vinci's horse, or better yet, "the horse that never was". But for those who are not, here is a short summary:
Da Vinci was commissioned in 1482 to create what was to be the largest equine statue in the world. The Duke of Sforza was the financier of the project.
Da Vinci created the drawings as well as the 24 foot statue, which was to be cast in bronze. But war broke out and the bronze was needed for the Dukes army. And, the enemy soldiers used the clay statue as target practice, basically destroying it. Leonardo never did to complete the project.
Fast forward a few hundred years. The original drawing were rediscovered. And since then, many artists around the world have created their versions of the majestic statue.
Recently, we had the honor to heat shrink wrap and prep one of these equines for transport.
With sculptures, transportation can involve high risk. Extra stabilizing measures are used to ensure safe delivery.
Devoted artists pour their time and talent into their creations. We are here to protect them.
