This is a man with a very eroded horse. The man is firmly holding the mane of his horse with his left hand, and seems to be listening attentively to his surroundings with his right hand clamped to his ear. The eye is almond shaped, the chest is powerful, and the head is oversized compared to the rest of the body (the legs, although very worn, appear particularly frail and very short). The front and back ends of the horse are damaged, but it seems to be in a full jump.
Jumping into the void, jumping through time, or jumping across an empty space, the figurine remains touching...
