Equestrian sculpture

In sculpture, an equestrian (from the Latin "equus" meaning horse) is a statue consisting of a horse with mounted rider. Such statues were frequently (but not exclusively) made out of military leaders of note, and such statesmen who wished to symbolically emphasize an active and strong leadership role.
