  Jane Hirshfield chose “Selene’s Horse” as the winner of the Wabash Prize for Poetry. It appeared in Issue The Horse of Selene was depicted as part of the frieze on the east pediment of the Parthenon on the Acropolis, Athens, ca. to BCE. The overall theme of this pediment is the miraculous birth of Athena from the head of her father Zeus, and the horse head captured by Brandes' lens belonged to one of the horses that pulled the chariot of.

  Selene was seduced by the god Pan, who gave her the gift of a white horse or, alternately, a pair of white oxen. She also bore several daughters with Zeus, including Naxos, Ersa, the goddess of youth Pandeia (don't confuse her with Pandora), and : Detraci Regula. The marble original, from the Parthenon, is in the British Museum and is one of the best loved pieces of classical Greek sculpture. The horse's head dominates the northern apex of the east pediment, which depicts at its centre the birth of the goddess Athena. Many witnessed this momentous event, including the goddess of the moon, Selene.

  Selene bathes in the ocean before riding up to the sky in her chariot every night, variously driven by a pair of white horses, bulls, or mules. She pulls the full moon across the sky. Alternatively she rides a horse sidesaddle.   Affected horses are prone to repeated episodes of tying-up, a circumstance that severely hampers preparation of the horse for competition and, in many cases, limits his athletic career.

The sculpture measures approximately 19cm x 12cm and may be used a book end (it has one flat side). The Horse of Selene is a detail from the east pediment of the Parthenon: a temple building from ancient Greece famed for its marble sculptures.

It originates from the Acropolis in Athens. Selene was the ancient Greek Titan goddess of the moon. She was depicted as a woman riding sidesaddle on a horse or driving a chariot drawn by a pair of winged steeds.

Her lunar sphere or crescent was either a crown set upon her head or the fold of a raised, shining cloak. Selene's Roman name was Lunar. The Selene horse head we are familiar with today is all that remains of the quadriga drawn by Selene.

Though both the east and west pediments are severely damaged, fortunately the traveller Pausanias recorded descriptions of the sculptural decoration when he visited the Acropolis at the end of the second century AD, which can help us to build up a picture of what the original.
