Astrid was sculpted by Maggie Bennett. In her first work for the Premier Collection, Maggie captured Astrid in a lively canter. From her sweet expression, to the way the wave in her mane matches her motion, she is a fine example of what makes a Fjord special. Maggie shares, “Fjords have a really interesting type with both pony and draft aspects, and capturing both was one of my big goals with this sculpture.”
Astrid’s coat was created by artist Nikki Button, who also created the lovely color for the Premier Collection’s Australian Stock Horse, Dundee. Her artistic focus is detailed realism, and she crafted a stunning grulla coat for Astrid! From her dramatic dark face to her frosty tail, Nikki brought Astrid to life with many layers of pastels & pigments, with details added in acrylic and pencil.
Astrid is available in two finishes - glossy and matte, which you were able to select earlier this year. If you did not make a selection, you will receive the matte finish. Both are lovely choices for this striking beauty with her uncommon color which assures that this mare will stand out amongst the crowd!
