A fine and rare model of a Persian Stallion, this bronze shows Moigniez's talents as an Animalier sculptor. He was best known for his birds and hunting dogs but this Stallion is superb and rivals any of his best feathered subjects. The Persian Stallion was cast in three sizes, this is the middle size.

The Stallion is standing on a naturalistic base with foliage and a tree trunk, his foreleg is raised and his head is up with his mouth open as he neighs. It is a very fine early cast done in Moigniez's own foundry and has a rich brown patina with some copper gilt highlights which was done on his best bronzes.
