The horse between discs is outside the Museum of London in London, England. The artist is Christopher Le Brun , the statue is bronze and made in 2001. The imagery of horses and discs is common in the work of Le Brun. It suggests travel and passing from one place to another. Here is what the artist has to say about it.
“When you talk about horses and riders in my work it is important to me that they are not seen as real. I think of it as an entrance or a key to places that I want to enter. It is as if “the horse” enables the journey rather than provides the final subject.”
What is interesting to me is that for those of us who are riders of horses ,we know that it is not only the physical journey they take us on. It is also a journey of knowledge of ourselves and in many ways a spiritual journey as well.
