Argentina is sculpted in a pose depicted from a single moment in the garrocha performance (vaquero dance on horseback involving a long garrocha pole demonstrating harmony betweem horse and rider). Although the pose of this sculpture came from one blurry image, as with the majority of my art, many references were used, in this case to create a fully dimesional model I used a lot of equine anotomy references along with videos of horses in movement along with what I already know of horses.
As with all my sculpting the equine form, breed and part of the world they come from is researched and has a major effect on the name given, for this sculpt I wanted to:
◇Attempt a mare. ◇Use a pose I had not yet seen sculpted that had the possibly to be used in more than performance situation for showing ◇Most of all I wanted to create a model of a breed that would be more of a challenge to paint, a.k.a loud white markings, and I came across the manchado pattern, the manchado pattern that has only been found in South America around Argentina where the Criollo breed originates.
She had all the extra details one photo can never show such as, chesnuts, female parts, frogs and other details on her bare hooves.
