Sunworld Fountain horses Bà Nà Hills Dà Nang


the fame of the artist, an expert and passionate lover of horses, is known worldwide also thanks to the equestrian monument in memory of the "War Horse", which is located in Ascot, in England.


Susan Leyland has sculpted not one, but five horses for Da Nang. Thanks to the commissioning of Frilli Gallery from Italy, Susan Leyland has designed and modelled five horses that pull the chariot of the Sun God Helios. This installation will be part of the "Sun Waterfall" project located at the Sun World Ba Na Hills resort. The name of the artist Leyland alone is enough to guarantee the refinement in the construction of this wonderful project.


The Grand Cascade theme revolves around the sun god Helios in his chariot. It is surrounded by 7 different interpretations of the goddess Venus and a number of other important deities from Roman mythology such as Bacchus (god of wine), Apollo (god of knowledge and the arts) or Athena (goddess of wisdom and war).

 

The fact that within this sculptural composition there are 7 versions of Venus (Aphrodite goddess of love) is one of the expressions of the variety, refinement, depth of knowledge of the Frilli Gallery and the ability to respond to demanding requests of the Vietnamese group SunGroup.

 

The Venus de 'Medici delicately covers her breasts with one hand. Venus Frejus wears a thin cloak and delicately reveals a small part of her naked body. The Venus in the Bath by Christophe-Gabriel Allegrain, preserved in the Louvre Museum in France, is another valuable representation. The Venus Kallipygia - Venus contemplating her hips - is yet another famous work replicated and present in the sculptural complex in Vietnam.


For more than a century Frilli Gallery has been the custodian of the casts of many priceless treasures of sculpture, and reproduces them with craftsmanship.


The goal of the Vietnamese investor Sun Group, the artist Susan Leyland and the artisans of Frilli Gallery, was to create a unique concept, for this important client, from the very beginning.

 

All hope that the  Sun World Bà Nà Hills Đà Nẵng -Vietnam - and the fountain will be open soon
