Giant Horse's Head lands in London's Marble Arch
Sculptor, Nic Fiddian-Green’s 30ft monumental bronze horse-head is creating a buzz in central London. Fiddan-Green, known for his signature Elgin Marbles-inspired horse’s heads sculpture, won this commission 4 years ago, to coincide with Marble Arch’s £2million refurb. Weighing in at 6 tones and only half an inch thick, the head is based on Indian breed of horse, interesting for their unusual, twisted ears – turned in towards the face so as to avoid dessert winds.
Aiming to inspire the public and add intrigue to the landscape, Fiddan-Green has done just that!
