: Bronze Statuette of a Rider

Bronze Statuette of a Rider, late 5th Century BC

“The Etruscan Rider in the ancient Greco/Roman section of the Chrysler Promenade, which may have already been chosen, is my all-time favorite object in the collection. It's amazing how wonderfully accurately those ancient people understood human anatomy & how skilled the unknown artist who created this marvelous cast bronze object was, so long ago. Look around the back of this fellow & you can see that the sculptor clearly knew how the muscles of our bodies work when we are astride a horse (long gone from the figure). The musculature of the back, the arms, the legs is entirely accurate. Look at the front of the figure and you can see the look of intense concentration in the face of the rider. Every detail of the human body in action is there.”
