Several tons of steel and concrete form a frame that has enough weight to withstand any storm. The frame was supplemented with over 1,000 wooden parts, all of which had to be cut by the CNC joinery machine to fit to the skeleton. Also nail-plate-trusses were used for the intricate construction. The complex CAD and CNC machining was carried out by our professional engineer Stefan Johannesmann and has been successfull.

Supplemented by shields, paddles and ropes which hold together everything a 9 m high horse was created. The delivery was made in three parts by heavy transport and assembly on site was carried out on a day where the entire horse then got a water repellent nano treatment.
Now it is visible to everyone as a leisure experience in the sculpture park Toverland and thrilled the audience there.
