Sculpture description:
Small Carved Stone Running Naive Baby Foal Unicorn for Indoors Inside Interior Display Statuette or sculpture or Ornament.

This is simply an enchanting carving.. intended to originally be a celtic style horse, but during the carving process, a strange and magical thing happened, a small horn started to appear.. and so a Baby Unicorn was born! hand carved in Caen stone (A finegrained french Limestone) suitable for indoors or outside in the garden. if left outside the stone will collect algae over time, and being quite a soft stone, details on the stone will soften and lose their sharpness. If you want to enjoy it in the garden, but slow down this natural weathering process, bring it inside during winter months when the weather is harshest.
Artist's comments:
I personally am in love with this piece!! for me it seems to capture and hold a bit of precious magical purity and innocence... so rare in our human obsessed.. overly serious..practical functional world. The Unicorn in mythology and folklore being the carrier of such blessed qualities, but even if i say it myself..- (and i am my own worst critic usually) I think these qualities really come across strongly in this carving.. somewhere between a childs toy horse/rocking horse/and ancient mythological creature from another world.. galloping sweetly into the consiousness of the viewer... reminding one of a time, childhood perhaps where magical beings, creatures lived alongside us. I think whoever claims this piece for their own.. will not be dissapointed, but be very lucky indeed!!
