I was intrigued by the foot that appears under the right hind leg of the horse in the foreground. So I looked up this statue and viewed it from several front angles. I like that your photo view shows part of the rear of statue, with the gold on the wheel spokes and the gold on the winged lion! Interesting that L'Harmonie is a male (as are all the horses) and the Discorde that is being trampled is a woman! Should I read anything into this beyond the fact that the statue itself is amazing...in it's creation and possibly it's statement!?! I suppose women can be discordant however.....!!!!! LOL
