The horse's head was in two layers about an inch apart. The white layer created the animal, while the rust background was just there to support the white and contrast with it.

A shot from directly in front of the sculpture. Notice the dozens of pins, each independently welded in place.

The back side of the statue was the mirror image of the front side. Neither side had any indication of who the artist was. Nor was there a plaque or other identifier nearby. This is why we labeled the artist as Unknown.
