Five Horses

This work by sculptor Boniface Stirnberg was, if I understood correctly, originally at the centre of the court outside the main train station (seen behind). At some point, it was relocated by twenty odd metres or so to its current location. This was, apparently, met with a lawsuit filed by the mentioned sculptor. The Cologne Court ruled that Herr Stirnberg had no say in the location but the city authorities were called upon to stick to the original arrangement of the horses.

L'enfant va s'envoler sur ces chevaux au galop.
Ayush Basu: la mère peut essayer d'empêcher
[The mother may not permit that at all, Martine]smile

It's a fine sculpture and it;s location provides a fine frontage to theat glorious station building.
Ayush Basu: I agree, Alan. The Aachen Hauptbahnhof certainly has a fine looking exterior.
Nice installation of interactive art
Ayush Basu: I agree, Martin. Thank you
They are very dynamic feeling.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for that comment, Mary
Funny how local authorities seem to be able to get away with almost anything these days, everywhere one goes. At least it is in its original layout, and what fine sculptures they are.
Ayush Basu: Yes I suppose so. In Singapore this has been an ongoing discussion for a long while.
Well good for them Ayush, I think they look great.
Ayush Basu: A very dynamic sculpture, Chad.
Looks like a fine sculpture!
Ayush Basu: It sure was a pleasantly eye catching one, Tom
They look like the are running quickly.
Ayush Basu: A very dynamic sculpture, Michael

Beautiful. I love the perspective on this one. It makes the horses look like they are in mid-motion.
Ayush Basu: You are very generous with your remark, Beth. Yes, the sculptor did conceive this rather nicely

It is a fine sculpture and you have framed it perfectly. I love Mum and Boy to the left of the photo. It adds a special dimension smile
I would love to see this for myself - but through your eyes is 2nd best!
