Mustang Country


Many years ago I visited a friend in Forth Worth Texas and she gave me a fantastic tour of her beautiful city.  Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of photos of the trip.  It was before the digital revolution so the few photos I do have are scanned from prints (like the one above).  One of the places she took me was a place called Williams Square in Irving Texas where I saw this wonderful sculpture of mustangs running through a stream of water.  There are little fountain in places around the horses legs so that it gives the effect of the water splashing under their hooves.  It's a stunning work of art created by sculptor Robert Glen.  Glen was born in Nairobi Kenya and is now living and working in Tanzania.  It's a work of art that I have remembered and loved from all those years ago.

There's a similar fountain sculpture in Tlaquepaque, Jalisco, Mexico . . a suburb of Guadalajara.

It's even the most beautiful sculpture of horses I have seen so far.
