Description

Bronze sculpture of a kind of horse or donkey with large, twisted horns similar to an impala antelope. Unlike horse or antelope, it has, however, no distinctive tail. On top of it sits a nude woman, probably with a tail that wraps around the back of her hip up to the other shoulder. The woman sits sideways, one hand loosely laid against the neck, the other raised in salute. The equine creature increases slightly with the front hooves, possibly to jump over a dog, which in the opposite direction as the horse-like creatures also rises roughly with its front legs, to jump over an even smaller object that looks like a tree stump.
