[Sculpture of Przevalski Horse]
EU-SP-Przevalski
The przevalski horse is very small, with short legs, a drooping belly, and a broad back. The name name originates with the traveler, named Przevalski, who discovered a small herd in Mongolia in 1881. The common name, Chinese Horses, is thus not surprising. The rock art inspiring this piece was made about 14,000 years ago. (Compare it with Picasso's work during his minimalist period.) A similar sculpture was based on rock art from France.
