A perfect gift for the horse lover in your life, this stunning piece of art is the perfect blend of Iconic Metal married to reclaimed pieces of barn wood, resulting in rustic yet elegant artwork. Each piece is an ornamentally carved piece of aluminum affixed to a repurposed piece of barn wood. A stallion is a male horse that has not been gelded. Stallions follow the conformation and phenotype of their breed, but within that standard, the presence of hormones such as testosterone may give stallions a thicker, "cresty" neck, as well as a somewhat more muscular physique as compared to female horses.
The term "stallion" dates from the era of Henry VII, who passed a number of laws relating to the breeding and export of horses in an attempt to improve the British stock, under which it was forbidden to allow uncastrated male horses to be turned out in fields or on the commons; they had to be "kept within bounds and tied in stalls. Thus, the term Stallion dates from this time; one uncastrated male horse bound in a stall, thus "stallion" is derived from "stalled one." 

Most pieces come in standard sizes of 16” x 9” or small sizes of 9” x 8”. The metal stands away from the wood approximately ½”. Each piece contains hanging hardware, an authenticity sticker, and is personally hand-signed by the artist.

The artist is a native of Greenwood, MS, a town on the east side of the Mississippi delta bordered by the Tallahatchie and Yazoo Rivers. His interest in repurposing came at a young age as he first learned woodworking and metal carving skills from his father who made folk harps. He started crafting these magnificent creations in his retirement after attending Mississippi State and a corporate career with Fed Ex. He now resides in Hernando, MS.
