So, do you think this is demonic?

Thank you!

Technically I could book a flight to Denver, but realistcally I can't miss any classes at school!

I remember the hubub about this sculpture when it was first put up. It may a bit on the macabre side, but I wouldn't call it demonic. I think one of the biggest points of contention was about it being the first thing you see when you exited the terminal at the airport. Some people thought it was a bad first impression for the city.

A long time ago, when I first studied landscape design and urban design, we had an assignment for designing a plaza with fountain in front of some miscellaneous office building. I set a unicorn pawing into the fountain...

and got a B since my choice ricocheted against the building, or something like that. Poor sense of context by me.

Later I learned about horses galloping across a plaza near
Dallas.

Smiles.

Like I said, I like the horse.

@ossobuco,
I like it too. I would like to see it in person. Frankly I am impressed with any real art in corporate settings. Houston has a large fountain with a herd of horses running through it with the water splashing under their hooves. It is HUGE and very impressive. I have a picture I took of it somewhere, but it was back in the 35mm days and I don't know if I have a digital copy. I had not heard about the one here in Dallas, but I have yet to get down town and look around. It would not surprise me.

@Aldistar,
I like it too. Wish it had been there when I had an airport stopover in Denver.

@Aldistar,
Those are the horses in the plaza I was referring to - I messed up by saying near Dallas. Texas, so big.
