    Horton Hears a Who Bronze Maquette #132/195 (MGM, 2010). Theodor Seuss Geisel first introduced his iconic elephant in the 1940 book, Horton Hatches the Egg and again, fourteen years later he reappeared in Horton Hears a Who! These tales blend positive messages and engaging story lines to support Horton's seminal proclamations that, "I meant what I said and I said what I meant. An elephant's faithful one hundred percent" and "a person's a person no matter how small." Through the years, this profound pachyderm has consistently represented the esteemed qualities of loyalty, equality and faithfulness. Offered here is an original bronze maquette of Horton the Elephant inspired by his second published appearence. It was designed by artist Leo Rijn and limited to an edition of only 195. It measures 14.25" x 15" x 9" and is mounted on a marble base. It's an extraordinary piece based on the work of one of the world's most recognized children's book authors and artists. Minor handling and condition is Very Good.
