The set is beautiful in jewelry way and restrained in military way. Adorning of subject and style of perfomance are decorative, they give feeling of brutality and heaviness of images armoured in cuirass of medieval knight. The subject has a secret. Head and neck of horse are none other than knive handle which lock main dagger fixing it on stand. Backpieces of handle of rider are stylized knight helmet, handle with wire winding is trunk. Central openings in wide blade of rider are fitted to blade of horse, head and neck of horse are transformed into full-size handle of classic knive. For full perception author added lances-stilettos which complete wholeness of composition and point to emulative action.
Fretwork in combination with attaching one layer of metal on another, in combination with decorative language of alternate rivets, point the relief of metal surface. In this work there are used symbols: different interpretations of cross and lilies - symbols of participation in Christ army and evidence of noble birth.
