Fragment of a horse's head, viewed from the right. This horse head is part of a group of moulded and carved stucco found at Nonsuch palace. These stuccoes were created by a
team of specialists including English craftsman William Kendall, Giles Geringe and Nicholas Bellin of Modena. Nonsuch palace is a royal residence near Ewell in Surrey. It was used as a hunting lodge between 1538 and 1547; it was later demolished in 1682-83. Nonsuch palace was designed to celebrate the Tudor dynasty, the 30th anniversary of Henry's reign and the birth of Edward. Nonsuch Palace played a key role in the development of Tudor architecture and the emergence of the Renaissance style in England.
