D'Orizza is a colorful mixed media plaster cast. The story behind it is a combination of a racehorse Zenyatta and a farm horse Dorica from my father's youth they had for working in the fields before tractors replaced horses. I have always been in love with horses and had some sort of romantic perception about them but my father always said there's nothing romantic about them when your livelihood depends on them. Anyhow, I decided to make a series of "Doricas" and make each cast unique. This one is a combination with Zenyatta, the infamous racehorse with a very successful racing career. I took her Adidas-like socks and added golden excrement behind her since I believe Zenyatta brought some big money to the breeders. In a way, Dorica did as well, or at least she brought the food on the table for that matter.
