Description purely and successfully naturalistic (Toynbee). Small horse stands on a rectangular pedestal base with feet at each corner. Head turned to right. Forelegs nearly parallel but right hind leg much further forward than the left. Some damage to head. Details corroded away but would have been a nice piece.
