When she was younger Keil used to ride stallions bareback across the desert in places like Arizona and Israel, and even as a little girl she loved horses.. Visitors to the Florence gallery can see her first ever bronze on the computer desk – a charming little horse about 12 cm across that she cast herself when she was nine years old. In addition there are currently three bronze horse sculptures in the gallery – the Arizona stallions (known as Air Horse, Fire Horse, and Double Horse) – together with three recent waxes (Caramba, Mustang, and Thelwell) more in the style of the great cartoonist whose books Sam devoured as a child. A cousin of the Arizona stallions – Nazgûl – can be found in the Cavendish Laboratory (the world-renowned physics department of Cambridge University, England). Photos of some of these works – and some older lost pieces – can be seen here.
