Takhi was created digitally (in Zbrush) by Enkhtur. We have a short video posted on Facebook of the initial sketching of the model 3 years ago. Details and changes were made prior to casting the stablemate version. Takhi comes with a card with information on the Mongolian wild horse and information on the artist on the back side. The card has original artwork also created by Enkhtur.

This wild horse is generally known as “Przewalski’s horse” (pronounced shuh-VAL-skee) but Mongolians call it Takhi, which means spirit, or worthy of worship. You don’t ride the Takhi, or stable it, or (pony-like as the horse appears) saddle it up and perch children on it at birthday parties. The horse is too wild for that. While it has been captured and occasionally confined to zoos, it has never been tamed. It is the only truly wild horse in existence. Other horses that are thought of as wild are in fact feral.

There are roughly 2,000 Takhi in the world right now, and the largest number of them live at Hustai National Park, within 60 miles of Mongolia’s capital, Ulaanbaatar.

Enkhtur Bayarsaikhan is a character designer and 3D artist living in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. He has illustrated many books and posters and created company logos and television commercials. His work has won several awards. Enkhtur grew up nomadic and offers unique insight into his native environment through his art. Enthur’s 3D models are digitally created in Mongolia and manufactured and sold by Seunta LLC, in the USA.
