Some works of art are simply breathtaking and these driftwood equestrian sculptures certainly belong in that category. The genius behind them is Heather Jansch from Devon, UK. Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci and beginning her career as an equestrian painter, she captures the movement, anatomy and poise of the animals perfectly. She has also found the perfect place to showcase them – a very small house on a hill above a wild wooded Devonshire valley with a stream running through it. The land had been untouched for forty years and is now rich in wild-life, providing the ideal sculpture garden which is open for charity twice a year. The house and studios are also open this autumn as part of the Devon Open Studios for the first three weekends in September 11am-5pm. See here for more details.
