Grumentum Horseman, Greek bronze, 550 B.C. This bronze horse and rider is one of the earliest pieces of sculpture to survive from what is known as Western Greece (Magna Graecia). Though it is small, the horse and rider have a monumental quality which seems to give them dignity and status. The warrior wears a Corinthian-style helmet and a short tunic. He once held a spear and reins, that were probably made of copper wire. Both horse and rider are extremely fine examples of bronze-casting.
