Throughout history, horse is our most loyal friend. It has a very important role in promoting human emotions, psychology and even the development of human society. Its unrestrained gallop gives us the power to defeat our enemies and ourselves.Its graceful and supple gives us security and warmth in life. Let's show the best of the world's top five "horse sculptures".
1. The most funny horse riding statue of St. Wenceslas in Czech
For nearly 100 years, the statue of St. Wenceslas standing on St. Wenceslas Square in Prague has been the pride of the people of the country. It is to commemorate the first king and patron saint of Bohemia-St. Wenceslas.
The sacredness of the king does not prevent the Czechs from making fun of it in good faith. Just a few meters away from the statue, there is a statue of St. Wenceslas re-interpreted by Czech sculptor David Serny. In this piece, St. Wenceslas is not a ride. On the horseback of a bronze horse, it rides on the belly of a dead horse with its head hanging down.
2. The most magnificent horseback riding portrait of Genghis Khan in Mongolia
This 40-meter-high, 250-ton stainless steel statue is by far the world’s largest equestrian statue of Genghis Khan, located in Erden County, an hour’s drive from Ulaanbaatar, and was completed in 2008.
Visitors can take the elevator to the sightseeing platform above the horse's head and look out at the endless prairie. This statue is part of a proposed theme park in a nomadic style, where visitors can experience the nomadic eating and living habits.
Just 20 years ago, the Mongolian government banned any commemoration of Genghis Khan. However, under the impact of nationalism, portraits of Genghis Khan can now be seen everywhere in Mongolian airports, universities and even vodka bottles.
3. The most welcoming statue of the Duke of Wellington, UK
This statue commemorates the first British Duke of Wellington, who defeated Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo, Arthur Wellesley.
It stood on Queen's Road in Glasgow in 1844. Somehow, in the past 20 years, it has constantly attracted some people's mischief.
These late-night good people on the street will sometimes climb up the statue and put a traffic cone on the head of the Duke. Local citizens believe that the road cone can therefore be regarded as an integral part of the statue, or a symbol of Glasgow. But the government does not seem to agree with this statement. Municipal workers will use high-pressure water jets to flush down the road cones, and the police will warn people that spoof statues will be prosecuted.
But the public is still deaf to this, and in a certain sense also encourages spoofers.
4. The most modern British "TheKelpies"
This modern sculpture was completed by the Firth and Clyde Canal in Falkirk, central Scotland. This pair of horse heads becomes the largest horse head sculpture in the world, named after a superpowered seahorse in Celtic mythology, and the public will be able to walk inside the two horse heads for a visit.
5. The most exquisite Chinese "Ma Ta Fei Yan"(Galloping Horse Treading on a Flying Swallow)
Ma Ta Fei Yan is a bronze of the Eastern Han Dynasty. It was unearthed in 1969 at the Leitai Han Tomb in Wuwei City, Gansu Province. It was unearthed from the tomb of Zhang Mou, the military chief who guarded Zhangye in the Eastern Han Dynasty, and his wife's burial grave. It is now in the Gansu Provincial Museum and has been regarded as a symbol of China's superb foundry industry since its unearth. In October 1983, "Ma Ta Fei Yan" was determined as a Chinese tourism mark by the National Tourism Administration.
From the mechanical analysis, the horse's three hoofs are vacated, and only the hoof stepping on the flying swallow is the center of gravity. It is stable and ethereal. It romantically highlights the horse's vigorous posture and expressive expression. It is both powerful and dynamic Rhythm.
