CHRIST AND HORSES
In Geneva, it’s the Jet d’Eau. In Paris, the Eiffel Tower. In New York, the Statue of Liberty. In London, it’s a horse’s head. A gigantic, monumental horse’s head that is the size of a building: 35 ft. or a good dozen meters high. Set up here not very long ago (2009), smack in the middle of a square, Marble Arch, itself located in the heart of the city, this has swiftly become one of the main curiosities in a city that already has plenty of them.
