Description:
Equestrian Statues are statues of famous people on horseback. The art form has been important and widespread in Europe and the Americas for hundreds of years, though there has been a definite falling-off of new ones in the past 75 years or so. The equestrian statue is often the most prominent memorial landmark in town.
Expanded Description:
An Equestrian Statue waymark must be a permanent, free-standing statue of a named historical, mythological or well-known fictional character depicted astride a horse. The statue may stand alone, or be a component of a larger sculptural composition. It may be situated in a public place or in a museum (adhere to local rules for photographing objects in museums).
