I love this sculpture. Does anyone know who the artist is, its name and anything else about this piece? (I can’t find anything on the web to share with you).

    If anyone wants to know, it’s next to Metsätalo, in Kaisaniemi.

    Artist is Emil Cedercreutz, whose favorite subject were horses.

    See for the Helsinki art museum site.

    I also find it intriguing how there’s a bronze of a bull moose down the park promenade some half a mile away; having a cow and calf moose here and the bull moose there would have been a beautiful example of art imitating nature even more.
