This beautiful bronze horse is full of character and sophistication.

His regal stance demands attention making him a definite conversation piece, especially when you divulge the name and retell the story. Embarr is amazingly tactile, cool to touch and surprisingly weighty. Place him somewhere you will look often such as a mantelpiece or desk.

In Irish myths, Embarr (which means 'imagination') was a horse from Tir Nan Og, the land of eternal youth. Embarr could travel across land and sea and carried Niamh from the other world to the world of man where she fell in love with Oisin, one of the great warriors of the Fianna. 

It is important to us at AUTHOR that traditional craft skills such as the ‘Cire Perdue’ technique used to create Embarr are not lost. Being able to continue through Embarr both the oral tradition of passing down legends and the ancient metalworking skills gives us a grounding and reassuring connection to the past.

  • A limited edition of twelve Bronzes cast in Northern Ireland by the The Mallon Foundry.

    An eye-catching Bronze inspired by the Celtic legend of Embarr, the horse who could cross land and sea from other worlds.

    The sculpture is cast in bronze using the primitive ‘Cire Perdue’ technique, in which the model goes through a series of incarnations, from clay, to wax, to ceramic and finally to bronze. The bronze is treated to achieve the amazingly deep colour, and coated with a layer of the maker's very own beeswax.

    The sculpture is discreetly stamped with its number, enabling your ownership of this very special piece to be recorded in the maker’s Owners Register.


  • Height: approx 20cm
    Length: approx 20cm
    Width: approx: 10cm

  • The foundry keeps some pieces in stock for speedy delivery but please note that occasionally delivery can take up to six weeks, due to show and exhibition commitments.

  • In his first year, your horse requires nothing more than a light tickle with a soft duster. The colour will continue to deepen. To keep the current patination you can reapply a layer of any natural paste wax, once a year, gently buffing afterwards with a soft cloth. Should your salmon become very dirty he can be cleaned using a little mild soap and water, rinsing well and drying completely before reapplying wax. For convenience, your sculpture arrives with his own little jar of beeswax.
