"Leonardo da Vinci was commissioned 500 years ago to construct an enormous
bronze horse for Ludovico Sforza, Duke of Milan, Italy. It was to be the
largest equine statue ever built, weighing 80 tons and standing 24 feet
high. Leonardo's full-scale clay model was destroyed by war and the bronze
horse was never constructed." This is a quote from
The site goes into some detail about the process of getting the horse from
the clay model to the finished bronze.
Those of you who do sculpture or molds would find this site and its links
very interesting.
