This statue by Ludovico de Luigi replicates a similar statue that once stood in front of St. Mark's Basilica on the Piazza San Marco in Venice. In the copy, de Luigi's nine-foot horses are captured in mid-stride with their powerful muscles stretched to capacity. Passersby at One Financial Plaza often stop to observe the piece. Savor any inspiration you receive from de Luigi's interpretation of the Venetian work. Sadly, the original was put into storage, having greatly deteriorated from years of neglect.
