Two sculptures mounted as decorative lamps belong to the series depicting one of the sculptor’s favourite subjects, equestrian sports. An excellent rider himself, Lanceray was fascinated by the idea of movement and masterfully expressed it. These sculptures can be considered as the epitome of Russian bronze sculpture of the 19th century.
