Somerset Liang Court

Horse 1016

Sculpture, Bronze, 39x104x21cm , 1998
Artist:  Han Meilin (b.1936), China
Location:  Somerset Liang Court Level 8, Singapore


This small sculpture depicts a horse in an elongated and stylized form, with its neck, body and tail almost in a straight line. On this line are various protruding elements: the horse’s ear and mane; and, by a master stroke of Han, three birds standing in line which adds much interest. The texture of the work is rough, and this, coupled with the antique bronze patination, makes it seems as though it has just been “unearthed”.
