Today, Christies will auction off “Bigger Bertie.”
He’s bigger alright.
Believed to be the largest handmade rocking horse in the world, Bertie stands about 15 feet high. He’s pictured here on a London street with six-year old Reva Lemanski.
The 2012 sculpture is made of marine plywood and has two trap doors. (His great granddad is the Trojan Horse, for sure).
Bidding starts at $38,000.
All things considered and over the long haul, he might be cheaper to maintain than those horses out in our pastures.
Quieter. No behavioral issues. No hay bills or manure.
But not much fun after the first few rocking sessions.
