Bronze Statue of a Rider & Horse

The leg of this antique bronze horse had broken off and was lost. It is not always possible or practical to re-cast parts of  metal object, so in this case Mike replaced the missing part with a very hard wood, carved the leg and coloured it to match. The repair cannot be detected.
