Palm Desert, CA - Visual artist Bernard Hoyes has accomplished yet another career defining feat. The master craftsman was recently commissioned by a private collector to recreate the divinely celebrated winged stallion Pegasus, one of the best-known creatures in Greek mythology. The five-foot "Roots of Pegasus" bronze sculpture is currently on display until the end of June as part of the "Below Sea Level" exhibition at the prestigious Melissa Morgan Fine Art Gallery, located at 73040 El Paseo in Palm Desert, CA. At the close of the showing, Pegasus will 'fly' home to his owner, an accomplished equestrian whose family has raised horses for over three generations!


Hoyes is world renowned for his inventive creations. His rarified sculptures transcend the norm and defy comparison. For instance, in 2007, Hoyes journeyed to the Fuzhou City in the Fujian Province of China to craft a six foot, three-ton granite rock sculpture of a blue fin tuna! His most recent "Roots of Pegasus" is an original in wood and plaster, cast in 100% bronze, with white patina and wood rendered on the plaster portion.
