Mene's sculpture L'Accolade of the Arab Stallion and Mare is one of his most famous works and was the basis for several other sculptures. From The Accolade, Mene produced the Arab Stallion Saddled, Cheval Libre, and this fine model of an Arab Mare with Saddle and Gun.
The Mare is posed with her saddle at her feet with all its straps and decorations, and leaned against the Saddle is an old Rifle. An excellent portrait of well bred Arabian Mare with her native Saddle and gear. The bronze has good details and a rich brown patina.
