Horse Statue by WDWParksGal Horse Statue by WDWParksGal
Horse statue in front of a mall in Akron. Taken with my iPhone, emailed to Sta.sh, posted via the iPad II 64 gig tablet, while laying in bed. How frickin' lazy is that?

Unrestricted stock. Will probably create a tube from it and post on my stock site.

*GinaHorst says about this statue, "That's a P.F Changs horse", which I found out is a Chinese restaurant. Since I cannot eat Chinese due to food allergies, I had never heard of it!

Don't know who P.F. Chang is/was. But if this was P.F.Chang's horse, then it should be noted that Msr. Chang died a natural death (if you use horse sculpture symbolism to interpret the piece).

I don't know who Chang was either. I did not even know the horse was related to the restaurant until someone told me! So, the sculpture without the rider means the rider died a natural death?

Been a while since I did my art history -- and from what I remember, the old code about horse sculptures has been muddied as many sculptors entered their art outside of the Academies and Formal Schools. (That is, some sculptors have followed the code from the past whilst others have chosen to break or ignore the code. So take any modern sculpture -- especially New World sculpture -- "with a hefty grain of salt".)

Four legs on the ground meant a natural death or did not die in battle. If the sculpture had three, then the rider was allegedly injured in battle. And so on. Lack of a rider however had no real significance -- at least from what I remember.

Someone else told me that. I had never heard of the chain, but now I will at least recognize it due to the horse! I cannot eat Chinese food due to allergies.
