Horse Conqueror

The first series of my new themed photos will be of statues in Copenhagen. And I start with a statue in a workers neighbourhood in Copenhagen. Situated in the South Harbour area this statue seems a little out of place but that is common in Copenhagen. You can find statues and art in the strangest of places. The Horse Conqueror was made by Thomas Vincotte in 1885 and was a gift from brewer Carl Jacobsen, son of the founder of Carlsberg.
