Leonardo's Horse

Local nameCavallo di Leonardo da Vinci
LocationSan Siro, Milan, Italy

Leonardo's Horse is a sculpture that was commissioned of Leonardo da Vinci in 1482 by Duke of Milan Ludovico il Moro, but not completed. It was intended to be the largest equestrian statue in the world, a monument to the duke's father Francesco Sforza. Leonardo did extensive preparatory work for it but produced only a clay model, which was later destroyed.

About five centuries later, Leonardo's surviving design materials were used as the basis for sculptures intended to bring the project to fruition.
