Slania's Famous Horse Engraving

In 1977 the 90th birthday of Kjøbenhavns Philatelist Klub (Copenhagen Philatelist Club) was honoured by a Stamp Exhibition in Bella Center in Copenhagen.   

One year before this exhibition Czeslaw Slania was awarded the KPK-medal, so he wanted to offer the club a present. 

This present was a special engraving of a horse.  Slania had chosen the motif himself, and had arranged that the primary sketch for the engraving was made by one of Poland's most renowned artists of animal-drawings, Count Piotr Michalowski.  

The result of the artists work was a drawing of an anatomically correct horse, which he engraved and issued in a small graphic sheet.

Engravings of more horses by Slania are on display on this site "Horses"
