Hounds are running. Their huntsman turns in the saddle, whip and reins in one hand, horn in the other, ready to ‘blow them away’ on the scent of their fox. This is the start of a run, that spine-tingling moment when all is possible—the run of the century, perhaps, or a quick thing—who knows? And David Geenty, as one of Europe’s leading equine sculptors, has captured the moment now in a new, large, and impressive limited edition bronze that brings the new hunting season into sharp focus in time for the Opening Meets.
Geenty’s eye for the horse is already highly regarded throughout Europe, and this bronze secures that reputation. So too, his eye for a hound—these are muscular, fit, hunting hounds getting into their stride. The horse is excited, eager for the run, held up by the huntsman who is about to blow the horn and send that thrilling message to the rest of the pack, and, of course, the ladies and gentlemen of the field, that hounds have found and the hunt is under way.
This beautiful solid bronze sculpture will become the dramatic showpiece of any room, coveted by connoisseurs of sport and fine art alike. It will make a marvellous centrepiece for a dining table or sideboard, or it can be spotlighted on a plinth as a work of art.
It is a large, important piece, weighing 3.7kg (more than 8lb 2oz), 35cm (nearly 14in) wide and 24.5cm (nearly 10in) tall. A family heirloom, it arrives beautifully boxed with its edition number and certificate of authenticity.
