The Horse Tamers

October 4th, 2013

This sculpture and its companion, presumably inspired by the monumental Roman Horse Tamers of antiquity, flank the Park Circle entrance to Prospect Park. According to the Parks Department: "The struggle between the frenzied horses and the nude youth was intended, as the sculpture's original title suggests, to illustrate 'The Triumph of Mind over Brute Force'."
