Equine Impedimenta (Tully’s Baggage) is an exquisite sculpture of a horse with an assortment of artist’s paraphernalia strapped to its mount. Inspired by the artist’s fascination with horses and the history of our human relationship with them Tim Storrier states, “Horses are beautiful creatures. Their partnership with us is ancient and although not without coercion it has been a wonderfully productive relationship” (Bowral, 2020). Having done numerous studies, drawings and paintings of horses and having collaborated with a master sculptor, Liao Shengxiang, Storrier was inspired to create these bronze maquettes that stand as tributes to these beautiful creatures.
