“The Mustangs of Las Colinas” by Robert Glen

“The Mustangs of Las Colinas” by Robert Glen is a statue monument located in Las Colinas, Texas. It is the world’s largest equestrian sculpture. The monument consists of nine bronze sculptures of wild mustangs galloping across a watercourse. The stunning and realistic sculptures are static yet capture a feeling of movement and energy. Water fountains placed near the horses’ hooves create the effect of water being splashed by their hooves as they gallop and add to the feeling of movement. The monument memorializes the Texan heritage and the spirit of freedom, expression, and individualism. It was completed in 1984, eight years after its conception.
