Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Thestral Statue Now Harry has learned what Oingo Boingo's album artists always knew! While quite ghoulish, the deathly Thestral looks like a dead horse with wings, totally graceful and horrifying all at once. If you want to add a touch of creepiness to your home or office, there's no better way than by picking up this massive 30cm tall statue. The creature's mighty wings measure 36cm wide, and it stands atop a rocky display base to make sure it's not going to get away. Limited edition. Thestrals, a type of winged horse, are black and skeletal in appearance, with protruding bones, leathery wings, blank white eyes and a dragonish face. Visible only to those who have seen death, Harry, Neville, Luna and Theodore Nott are known to be able to see them. Thestrals fly extremely fast, have an unerring sense of direction, and understand human speech. All that is required is for the rider to tell them where to go, and they will fly there at an exceptional pace.
