Liska and Fazan are Lipizzan horses, a mare and a foal. The mare is in a unique pose for a model horse, she's shaking her head and mane. Her playful colt seems to be a bit surprised by his mother's expression.
The inspiration for this sculpture was born during my holiday in Slovenia last summer. It was a lovely sunny day in the middle of July, somewhere near Lipica, long grass, buzzing bees and a group of grey mares looking for the shadow under the trees. They shook their manes quite often because of the irritating flies. Foals did not seem bothered though, playing around happily. I loved it and I hope my work shows a bit of that moment! :)
