It's beautiful and at certain angles, appears to be suspended mid air. I don't think it's worthy of a special trip but be sure to include it when visiting Hyde Park and the Marble Arch.

Took me a while to "see" the horse's head! But once I saw it, I couldn't unsee it. It's a stunning sculpture and the bronze adds to the beauty. When in Marble Arch, go have a look.

Nic Fiddian-Green's outstanding bronze sculpture in an ideal setting. It is striking from any aspect. For me, it is when framed by the trees.
