Goodman’s Arab Stallion - 2014
“At Goodman’s Fields we had the opportunity to create a landmark that celebrates British craftsmanship as well as the history of the local community.” (Berkeley Homes)
Hamish was commissioned by Berkeley Homes to create six life-and-a-quarter size bronze horses for the main Piazza at Goodman’s Fields, London - for which he was awarded the annual Marsh Awards for Excellence in Public Sculpture and Public Fountains in 2016 by the Public Monuments and Sculpture Association. Each remarkable bronze horse sculpture is available individually as a limited edition of 6.
Another ancient horse breed, the Arab is distinctive with its high tail carriage and concave profile. Hamish’s larger than life-size rearing Goodman’s Arab Stallion sculpture perfectly captures the spirited nature of the breed.
Exact scale replicas of all the Goodman’s Fields Horses by Hamish Mackie are also available in limited editions.
THIS SCULPTURE IN THE MAKING
The Goodman’s Arab Stallion was based on Sambist, a racing stallion originally from Russia who won all five classic races, including the Russian Derby and St. Leger. I sculpted this Arab Stallion in my studio after observing, photographing, videoing and measuring Sambist at his retirement home, Gadebrook Stud.
