Majestic Paper Horses Grace Lincoln Cathedral

Using sheets of A1 paper, famed paper artist Richard Sweeney created four life-sized horse sculptures for an Olympic-inspired flower festival. Set inside Lincoln Cathedral in the UK, “Dreams of Gold” saw tens of thousands of flowers from every corner of the world turned into horses, chariots and flames. No doubt the star of the show was Sweeney's majestic paper creation. His stunning horse sculptures were made of a flexible, wood skeleton and then covered with a paper skin.
