Hi shandiane -
You must have liked the *Giant Sized Clown* in that one link too.  You need one for your living room, I think. ;) So make sure you put that on your Xmas list.  I sure would...

As for the *Giant Horse*, one of the links says the SIZE of it is 3m X 4m.  No wonder it needs metal supports.  I would not even want to SNEEZE around it...

Personally I'm not one for giant glass horses or clowns but it's an impressive piece Rose and I can certainly understand the attraction for many.  However, following your Photobucket link I found the following glass sculpture - *this* is WOW to me (in fact it reminds me of my hair circa 1980) ...

Thought I would post a picture of my 10" Signoretto horse. The horse recently sold. The buyer was very happy, since Signoretto is hard to find at reasonable prices. I hope it was the horse's last trip in the mail.

This horse has a long story...
The design was made by a famous venetian painter, De Luigi, than it was realized by Pino Signoretto under the DeLuigi artistic direction.
The production had several troubles: the horse is made by several pieces in some way attached and glued toghether, but this process doesn't success very well at the beginning, but Singoretto is really the master for heavy glassworks.
At the end Signoretto wanted to have the piece atributed to himself as a "singoretto" artwork.
But also DeLuigi wanted to "sign" the piece and they had a kind of trial on this issue...
Now I don't remeber how it finished the story  :P... , but I will look for some info and I will write the end soon...

Anyway the size is incredible, pratically a real big horse...

Ciao
