The horse from the Equestrian Statue of Colleoni. The statue was unfinished at the time of Verrocchio's death in 1488, though he had completed both the clay model of the figure and horse. Verrocchio assigned his pupil Lorenzo di Credi the task of completing the statue in his will. In 1490 the responsibility of completing the monument was passed to Alessandro Leopardi who also designed the base of the monument.
