Wild Horses

What is it with the streets of Paris and Horses. This
animal has to be the symbol of the city.
Did you know that the positioning of the horses feet
relative to the ground in sculptures, signifies how
the rider of the horse died.
For example the beautiful golden sculpture of
Joan D'Arc outside Hotel Regina (above), with feet
raised off the ground, means that she did not die
on the battlefield.
