This is my custom designed kinetic LEGO sculpture of a galloping horse. It is built entirely with LEGO parts, mostly using Technic pieces, and can be operated by a hand or with a motor.
It was quite a challenge to reproduce the fluid motion of a horse. I tried to capture several of the subtle movements involved, including the rocking of the body, the slight forward thrust of the head and a little flick of the tail.
