Item # 302MZB16P

It is a delightful sand-cast example with a reddish-brown overall patina and features a seated Arab horseman looking out into the distance having spotted something important from his mount. His pair of greyhound hunting dogs are at ease, though one lifts its head having perhaps caught the scent of prey. The
