Bronze, Signed Hamish Mackie, Numbered Edition of 6, Dated 2014
Hamish was commissioned by Berkeley Homes to create six life-and-a-quarter size bronze horses for the main Piazza at Goodman’s Fields, London – for which he was awarded the annual Marsh Awards for Excellence in Public Sculpture and Public Fountains in 2016 by the Public Monuments and Sculpture Association. Each remarkable bronze horse sculpture is available individually as a limited edition of 6.
The Andalusian horse is known for its elegance and strength. Highly prized for thousands of years, this breed comes from the Iberian Peninsula and was used by the nobility as a war horse. Hamish’s larger than life-size proud Goodman’s Andalusian Stallion sculpture shows the long neck and broad chest characteristic of the breed.
Thoth (pronounced tehuti) was the Egyptian God of the moon, wisdom and magic. Ancient myth tells us that it was Thoth that “measured the heavens and planned the earth”. Thoth is often depicted with the head of an ibis, its crescent-shaped beak links the bird to the shape of the new moon, a symbol of a source that has governed the seasons and night and day throughout time. The shape of the tail is also an inference to the moon, forming a beautiful crescent shape

Frankel life size
Frankel (foaled 11 February 2008) is a British Thoroughbred racehorse. Frankel was unbeaten in his fourteen-race career and was the highest-rated racehorse in the world from May 2011. In 2010 he defeated a field including Nathaniel and Colour Vision on his debut before winning the Royal Lodge Stakes by ten lengths and the Dewhurst Stakes in which he defeated the Middle Park Stakes winner Dream Ahead. As a three-year-old, he won the Classic 2000 Guineas by six lengths, defeated the outstanding older miler Canford Cliffs in the much-anticipated Sussex Stakes at Goodwood and won the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at Ascot. Frankel extended his unbeaten record in 2012 by winning the Lockinge Stakes, the Queen Anne Stakes and the Sussex Stakes for a second time. In August he was moved up to a mile and a quarter for the first time and won the International Stakes at York. In October he won the Champion Stakes at Ascot, again over a mile and a quarter, following which his retirement from racing was announced.
