Share The Love is thrilled to announce a custom glazed earthenware figure of the Arabian stallion Marranas to be auctioned off this week during Breyerfest 2017! He is at the Clarion Hotel to view in person in room 229, with special thanks to Sheryl Leisure.
permission of the Maureen Love Calvert estate, Share The Love produces
replicas based on sculptures by Maureen Love, as well as reproductions
of her drawings. We are auctioning a horse in motion figure that is
reduced in size and different from any of its earlier issues.
Collectors will have the opportunity to bid on Share The Love's
combination of one of Maureen's magnificent Arabian horse sculptures
with the award-winning glazing talents of Kristina Lucas Francis.
Photos cannot capture the details Kristina put into him.
Marranas is 8 1/2 inches tall and his dappled palomino color represents a
partbred Arabian, shaded and lightly dappled with an interesting blaze,
sock and stocking and partial white coronet. He has hoof growth rings,
pinking on his white heels and in the cannonbones, and hair by hair
etching at every white border. He has a bright and true-colored face,
and the artist took extra care to prevent his face gray skin from
turning green on his golden coat. He has two kissy spots on his muzzle,
and the muzzle skin itself is shaded with three colors. Marranas eyes
are deeply detailed and even have veined scleras.
We are taking written offers via private email and here in person at
Breyerfest on the custom glazed Marranas until this Saturday, July 15th
at 8:00 pm Eastern Time, open to everyone. We are happy to ship him if
the winner isn't here to take him home, and shipping is extra. Opening
bid is $600. Bids can be made by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in person in the room.
