Bronze Horseman

St. Petersburg, Russia
4.7 / 13
Monument dedicated to the founder of the city, Peter the Great, located on Senate Square. The Bronze Horseman appeared at the request of Empress Catherine II. She conceived to perpetuate the image of Peter in a magnificent figure with a scepter, dressed in the clothes of the Roman emperor, but the sculptor Falconet thought differently. He represented Peter as the creator, benefactor of Russia. The result is a monument where Peter patronizingly “extends his right hand” over the country.
