Some Folks Call Sculpture HorseSh*t, But This is the Real Thing

Visitors to the Horseworld Rescue Center in Bristol, England got an eye- (and nose-) full of a new sculpture in the gardens yesterday. Sculptor Sophie Howard is completing a life-size model of a horse out of, you guessed it, manure. The statue is part of a green theme exhibition planned for the center in the second half of July.

Howard likes making unpredictable sculptures and feels that re-using the manure humorously honors the green and recycling themes of the exhibition. To make the all-natural sculpture, Howard visits the manure pile daily for fresh material to mix with clay and lime for application to a willow frame, which will show through the surface of the manure, representing muscles and flesh of the horse.

I like the idea of the horses at HorseWorld giving something back to the people who will visit the exhibition!

Other sculptures in the exhibition will include a horse made of thousands of CDs created by Bristol sculptor Dean Williams and a horse’s head carved by chainsaw impresario AD Tree Pirate.
