UK - London - Nic Fiddian-Green Horse sculpture

Artist Nic Fiddian-Green's giant 30ft bronze 'Marwari Horse at Water' sculpture which stands at London's Marble Arch. Seated beneath this huge piece of scaled equine head are young people, leaning and sitting on the horse's plinth. This is a popular stopping off place for those enjoying late summer temperatures. The head stands on the end of its nose, a balancing act effective as a standalone piece of art that represents the carrying of wounded masters to safety that had an extraordinary resonance for the artist. Commissioned to create the piece by JCB founder Sir Anthony and Lady Bamford in January 2006 ? just after Fiddian-Green had been diagnosed as suffering from a rare form of leukaemia. The Marwari breed was famous in India for centuries as the mount of the Rajput cavalry. (Photo by In Pictures Ltd./Corbis via Getty Images)
