Three different woods - Acacia, walnut and lime – were used to create this statue by Tony Venzo.
The work represents a horse jumping and the feeling that the sculptor wants to convey is that of speed and stepping forward towards a future destination.
The charging forward is not only the horse but also the spirit of the man who becomes one with the sculpted wood.
Toni is a sculptor and a designer in wood. He can feel inside the body of the trees and his creations are always soft and sinuous. He received the passion for the woods from his father and has given it to his wife and children, with whom he shares the joy and the travails of creation.

Italy, Pove Del GrappaFIND IT HERE
Pove del Grappa started life possibly as a quarrying town for the ancient roads in this mountainous area of north east Italy. It lies at the south eastern entrance to the pass through the pre-Alpes to Valsugana, that is also the name of the road today, one that has been travelled by great historical names on their route from Venice to the Holy Roman Empire.
Pove also sits at the western base of the Grappa mastiff, and is on many walking trails through this historic, forested and much embattled region.
