Still Water and the art of Nic Fiddian-Green


Still Water

Still Water by sculptor Nic Fiddian-Green, being installed at Ascot in 2010. Fiddian-Green has been creating horse sculptures for 30 years, inspired by a Fifth-century BC carving of a horse he saw at the British Museum. “All my work is on horses, they are the greatest animal,” he said.
“My family ride and I ride, it is an ancient culture which is part of our heritage.”
One of his most famous horse sculptures is at London’s Marble Arch. In fact a Philadelphia racetrack owner was so taken with it that he commissioned a similar head for his track. The 35-foot bronze sculpture, which was made using the “lost wax” technique.
