About

Horseland made by Hrvoje Dumancic Bringing together art and nature, Hrvoje Dumancic, a prominent Croatian sculptor born and based in Zagreb, created a series of works entitled Horseland. Each peice renders the image of a horse, a central figure of Dumancics world. An iconic creature that historically connects humans and nature, it is treated by Dumancic in a highly personal, even intimate way. A rider and horselover since his childhood, Dumancic is quite far from seeing horses as animalistic symbols of power and pride, but rather reveals what can be called an infinite soul of the horse, which is as sensitive and as fragile as a soul of the man. This personal philopshy lies behind each and every element of Horseland. Breaking with the standards of industrial production of art and just with the conditions of the hightec world, Dumancic builds Horselands in an authentic way, using only natural materials and following the forgotten traditions of classic, timeless masters. Each piece of Horseland is made by hands in Dumancics studio in Zagreb, as if the artist animates every sculpture not only by his own energy, but also by the energy of the place where he lives and where he takes care about his horse Etoile. Why only horses? According to the author's view, horses are neither a benefit nor a limit, but simply a challenge and a journey spontaneously followed without the desire to meet other goals or interests. Horses are no longer just sculptures but become the author's way of life.

About Hrvoje Dumancic

About Hrvoje Dumancic


Standing in front of his workbench, he studies the movement he has captured in the magnificent white sculpture of a horse that stands in front of him. Hrvoje Dumancic slowly turns the statue round slightly and steps back again to scrutinise every detail before he smiles, happy with his work and gently places it on the display shelf behind him to join the collection of his work that he has named 'Horseland'. Hrvoje Dumancic was born in Zagreb, Croatia and still lives and works there. Since he was a young boy, he has had two great passions – horses and art - and today those passions are entwined entirely and are the focus of his life. As a young boy, he started horse riding and thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of it – especially show jumping which he soon excelled in and in 1992 he became vice-champion in the Junior Equestrian of the League of Croatia. Today he remains an enthusiastic and highly accomplished competitor on the show jumping circuit. Whilst he was learning to horse ride, he became interested in art, and on leaving school he studied at The School of Applied Arts & Design – specialising in sculpture and then went to the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb, where he obtained a major in sculpturing. His inspiration for his sculptures has always been horses, and they have always been the focus of his work. Hrvoje's deep love and understanding of horses is apparent in his fascinating studies. Horses are iconic creatures that have historically been the connection between man and nature. In his work, Hrvoje captures their movement, their shape and character, but importantly also their soul, which he describes as 'fragile as the soul of man'. He often spends time watching his own horse 'Etoile' so that he can perfectly capture every aspect of his sculpted equine character perfectly. As his life is so closely interwoven with horses, Hrvoje's exquisite sculptures have much of his own character in them too. Each sculpture is painstakingly hand worked in white natural materials and is a timeless classic that can bring constant pleasure to those who have it displayed in their home or office...
