"Leonardo Horse Project" 🐎🐴 On the occasion of the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death, Leonardo’s Horse is the protagonist of a major enhancement project.
Leonardo's Horse is a sculpture that was commissioned of Leonardo da Vinci in 1482 by Duke of Milan Ludovico il Moro, but not completed. It was intended to be the largest equestrian statue in the world, a monument to the duke's father Francesco Sforza.
It stands as tall as a house--24 feet high, 28 feet long and 8 feet wide--and weigh 15 tons. The statue, cast in silicon bronze with a stainless steel internal structure, will withstand earthquakes.
On the picture is 1of 13 creation of 13 scale reproductions of the Horse, reinterpreted by national and international acclaimed artists, placed in different Leonardo da Vinci’s iconic spots.
