These majestic life-sized horses galloping through the sea were made from hundreds of pieces of driftwood salvaged from the shore by British-born artist James Doran-Webb. With the assistance of a team of talented craftsmen, Doran-Webb created these masterful artworks during a period of six months as part of celebrations to mark Chinese New Year in Singapore.
Doran-Webb comes from Birmingham but has been living in Cebu City in the Philippines for 26 years where he runs a workshop. The wood he uses in his sculptures has been salvaged from beaches and rivers around Cebu by a network of locals who Doran-Webb pays to collect it. Initially, Doran-Webb used to collet the driftwood himself in a kayak.
