The horse figured prominently in ancient Mediterranean culture and art and was among the earliest and most commonly depicted subjects explored by Greek artists. Horses symbolized wealth, power, and prestige but also were treasured companions of humans and the gods. Early sculptures, in profile, closely mimicked painted silhouettes of the animals.
