Michael Binkley’s inspiration for this horse head sculpture came from a photograph of an ancient antiquity sculpture fragment. This original wildlife stone sculpture is a Roman war horse that is wearing a halter and bridle and the rider has pulled the reins taut. Thus the horse’s chin has been pulled back to its chest. The horse’s ears are back flat against its neck and its mouth is in a grimace, as if fighting furiously with its master. The mane is a bristled comb, akin to a Roman Centurion’s helmut decoration.

“Restrained Fury” is carved from a variety of French limestone from the Beauval region. This stone has many negative spaces in it which gives the sculpture the appearance of being an ancient, pitted marble sculpture.
