    The flat clay relief shows a naked youth facing the viewer in slight contrapostal. His head is turned to the left and is only visible in strict profile. The young man is only dressed in a coat that is curled around his shoulders and falls in serpentine folds to his sides. With his left elbow he supports himself on the back of a horse, which stands behind in a calm position. The right hand holds a laurel wreath in a slightly lowered position. The horse of about the same size is shown in a strict side view, the head is slightly turned into the picture. It appears only a little plastically. His left forefoot is raised to the crotch, the tail drawn in between the hind legs. Although the horse is clearly wearing a bridle, the young man does not hold it. The original picture refers to the representation on plate 55 in d´Hancarville's "Collection of Etruscan, Greek and Roman Antiquities from the Cabinet of the Hon. W. Hamilton, Naples, Paris 1766/67, Tom 1. On this plate one recognizes in its left half the tomb of a warrior with sacrificing figures. This warrior's tomb consists of a flat base with a meander ornament above which, framed by Ionic columns, is a pictorial representation of the warrior with his horse. The whole is crowned by a triangular gable with acroters Cavaceppi's relief then served Billdhauer Johann Christian Erhrlich from Dessau, a student of Cavaceppi, as a template for the execution of a sandstone relief on the "Guard House for Horses".
