Horses and bulls in Tuscany

Made of terra cotta again.  Garden ornaments, I presume.  I believe a living artist created the model for these two odd works, and they may have been created for a commission.  Chi sa?





But, as strange to me as the horse sculptures above are, the work below is arresting!

It is a human-sized statue in terra cotta of a matador, but the head is replaced with the head of a toro!  I love the switch.  I personally am not a fan of bull-fighting; I might be if they didn’t injure the animal and then provoke it until it dies.



I guess you can find just about anything in Italy!!
