Horses of Saint Mark
The traditional theory attributes the sculptural group to the sculptor of the 4th century BC, Lysippos, thanks to its plasticity and natural body movement.
However, studies in its material showed that the horses are mostly from copper (which is best for gilding) and their processing with the techique of the lost wax in a monumental size suggests a later date to 2nd or 3rd AD. They might have been on the top of a triumphal arch, while it's possible they were comissioned by Emperor Septimus Severus.
During the Byzantine Era, written sources indicate that the horses adorned Constantinople's Hippodrome among many statues from around the world including an egyptian obelisk and a serpent column. As the chariot races' hallmark, the horses must have been exceptionally impressive when shining thanks to their gilding.
In 1204, during the Last Crusade, the Crusadors plundered Constantinople. At Doge Enrico Dandolo's command, the Venetians took the horses in Venice. Since their heads had been cut off for the transportation, collars were added to hide the reparation's scar. However, it wasn't until 50 years later, after Doge Ranieri Zeno's initiative, that the horses were put in the loggia on the façade of San Marco.
The horses inspired artists, such as Gentile Bellini, and drew the curiosity of the scholars, like Petrarch, who were the first to wonder about their origin.
In 1797, they were looted by Napoleon's army and were installed along with a quadriga on the Arc Du Triumph Du Carousel, in Paris. The horses on the Arc today are exact copies.
In 1815, the horses were victoriously restored to San Marco. The horses we see on he façade today are copies, as the original are transferred inside the basilica for protection.
In conclusion, despite not knowing their origins with certainity, the horses have made a story for themselves. Whether they honor a Roman Emperor, symbolize the momentum of the chariot races or mark the glory of Venice or France, these beautiful horses have never stopped stimulating our imagination.

[Video Description: A 3D render of a jellyfish-shaped carousel with sea dragon horses spinning to the beat of an upbeat chip-wave song. A person with long hair wearing a coat and bunny hat and a small pink rabbit ride the carousel next to each other. The center of the carousel glows a pink to blue gradient and has many types of ocean creatures silhouettes cut out. End Description.]

A bit of a smaller upload as I work through more designs, but now that I have more of Ura’s circus aesthetic down I can make more informed decisions about her crew’s colour schemes, starting with this one! This is Hippocampus, essentially Ura’s getaway driver when tied to her circus wagon. That said, the other constellations aren’t sure if it’s actually sentient or merely an illusion conjured with Ura’s magic, as it only seems to move on her command and sits eerily still otherwise. The only sound it’s known to make is a hollow, ghostly neigh…
I’m not sure if the original mapper of the constellation intended it to be the mythical hippocampus (literally half horse half fish) or a seahorse (the small creature we know today that also shares the Latin name), so I went with more of a mashup here, part seahorse and part carousel horse to match the theming. The colour scheme took a lot of workshopping this time but I think it turned out well!
