This piece, however, demonstrates a different side of my work. The project had a precise purpose  which required realistic application of my skills. These types of pieces are usually commissioned by  clients who want to immortalise a subject of significance.
Captain Al, a very famous thoroughbred who has recently passed away, was the subject of  this very special project. I had the opportunity to meet him, measure him and photograph him for his sculpture.
Klawervlei Stud’s John Koster explained the technical details of Captain Al’s anatomy and the  mechanics of a champion, thoroughbred horse to help me understand what made him so special.
The whole experience immensely increased my knowledge of (mostly thoroughbred) horses.  John had a strong connection with Captain Al which made my job that more daunting, yet exciting at the same time.
