Life-sized horses graze in public parks, museums, and private gardens with elegance and grace. However, these horses are actually sculptures by internationally renowned American sculptor Deborah Butterfield. Originally crafted from sticks and mud, Butterfield now works in bronze that is cast to resemble patinated driftwood. Butterfield is represented by numerous American galleries, and her spectacular works can be found in the country's most prestigious museums including he Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Rockwell, and the Honolulu Museum of Art, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, as well as many others.
