The Horse Tamer

I came across a picture of The Horse Tamer on Saint Petersburg DP. On the Anichkov Bridge there are four dynamic bronze statues of rearing horses and their tamers designed in the 1840s by Pyotr Klodt.

As I remarked there
it is almost impossible to photograph without those wires showing.
My own photograph of one of the statues is on my [as yet incomplete] account of our 2006 Cruise.

In the charcoal version above I've attempted to remove the offending wires.


  1. Even it is difused photo its amazing


  2. Very nice picture! It's a shame we couldn't enjoy it totally because of the offending wires. =(

    Have a nice week
