Bournemouth sculptor makes world’s smallest horse and jockey figurine for Queen’s Jubilee

A Bournemouth MICRO sculptor and painter has created a new figurine to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

David A. Lindon’s microscopic horse and jockey sculpture is the smallest in the world.

David A Lindon said: “To help celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee, I am delighted to announce the creation of the world’s smallest horse and jockey.

“Mounted on a solid gold pin, the horse measures an astonishing 0.4mm wide.

“He captures the moment of jumping over the last hurdle before galloping to the finish line.

“The Queen has always had a passion for horses. She started riding when she was just three years old and in addition to riding, the Queen is an avid horse breeder, conservationist and racehorse owner.

Six pieces of Mr Lindon’s work can be seen in the ‘Small is Beautiful’ miniature art exhibition in South Kensington, London, including one of his masterpiece micro paintings from the second series titled 1921 by Mondrian.

The exhibition includes works by 34 local and international artists, Mr A Lindon says he will continue to exhibit his work around the world.

The first set of his six micro artworks sold for over £90,000 and created a media storm.
