This is a sculptural detail of famous Alexander Sarcophagus now in the Archeological Museum at Istanbul. On one of the four panels of the sacrophagus Macedonians and Persians are hunting wild animals together, with the help of dogs. On the rest of the panels, Macedonians and Persians are fighting each other. Here the sculptor carved out the figure of the Macedonian king Alexander the Great riding his horse Buchephales fighting a Persian. Comes with a hook in the back for easy wall hanging.
Made of cast stone. Cast stone is a type of gypsum cement whose properties are much different from plaster of paris which is what most sculpture shops use. Unlike plaster, which is soft, light and weak, cast stone is hard, heavy and strong. Cast stone feels like, and is heavy like a real stone would be, which can be experienced as soon you try to lift it.
