Amazing vintage sculpture of a horse, this very ornamental horse is a beautiful decorative figurine or Okimono in Japanese. It is hand-made by a famous Japanese artist, Saegusa Soutarou.

This charming cast iron sculpture with a unique expression and line has some golden, and bronze reflections.

The horse is the seventh symbol in the Japanese Zodiac. In the past, horses and people lived and worked side by side, and their mighty bodies and their power made them the symbol of “life”. This sign represents “liveliness” and “openness”.

The horse has been an integral part of Japanese society for many centuries. From antiquity, the Japanese worshiped the horse as a god. They believed that the "divine spirit" appeared in the human world on horseback, and horses were sometimes offered at shrines for the coming of the gods.

Saegusa SOUTAROU (1911-2006) Biography:

Born in 1911 in Kagawa prefecture he became a recognized sculptor at an early age and participated in numerous prestigious shows, where he won a number of awards.

His works are collected by museums and also displayed as monuments in major cities of Japan. A big enthusiast of art, Saegusa is known for a variety of themes and postures, reflecting traditional Japanese culture with the addition of some abstract elements. His works are highly revered for their artistic beauty. After his retirement from a post of professor at the Nagoya University of Arts, he created numerous large-scale bronze monuments and sculptures. Even in his 90s, he continued creating beautiful art pieces.

The item is in good shape with only minor abrasions due to its age: Showa period/late 20th century.
