Lost in the big picture..



You would think it almost impossible not to notice the life size sculpture of a horse above the entrance to St Georges Square on St Georges Terrace. Looking at the last shot you will see that against the glass building behind it could be quite easy to miss when you look at the big picture, in fact many people that I have asked about it have said 'what horse' :) Best viewed from the other side of the road I was happy to capture the horse reflected above in the marble of the building opposite. Sculpted by Italian sculptor and painter Ludovico de Luigi who in the 1980's created a series of enormous bronze horses inspired by the famous quadriga of St. Mark’s. De Luigi’s horses are now in the squares of Marseille, St. Louis, Chicago, Denver, Perth and Bolzano. Happy Weekend, take care and stay safe..

  8. Oh yes, that horse statue is pretty special. It has a distinctive look that I feel like I've seen before. I think I need to check out the ones in some of those other cities.

  9. Fabulous first photo Grace. I have seen the horse there before, but as you say it's easy to miss in the big glass building.
