Estrella: the story behind the sculpture
Estrella (meaning Star) is a working horse from Guatemala who helps her family by collecting firewood. She and her family have been helped by a World Horse Welfare project, improving Estrella's condition. Her sculpture design has been created by iconic milliner David Shilling, who has envisaged how working horses like Estrella should be kitted out if they were to canter across a Hollywood stage to receive an award.
