Running Horse Cuff in Gold and Silver

Paul Szabo, Sr.

About The Running Horse Cuff in Gold and Silver

Though Mr. Szabo's equine forms have been aesthetically reduced to silhouettes, their animated shapes are embued with life and character.  We see these five horses running and, as the bracelet is turned, light plays across the mirror finish of their golden bodies, adding to the feeling of movement.  Then we see the last and smallest creature, running with his head turned to look behind him.  Is it to question the degree or the imminence of the danger causing the group to flee?

Five horse silhouettes were cut from a heavy gauge sheet of mill rolled 14K yellow gold.
