“Mongolian Mount”

Out Of Mongolia

Several years ago the Denver Art Museum had an outstanding exhibit of Mongolian art. Included in this exhibit were some unbelievably beautiful saddles. As time passed I found myself thinking about these saddles – one in particular almost all of the time. I decided that I needed to sculpt a small version of this saddle. When the saddle was finished, I liked it, but without a horse it looked so incomplete. Mongolian horses are very tough but they are small. I felt that this saddle needed a larger horse so I put it on a Chinese type horse. After all – Genghis Khan did end up in China.
