Quadrupeds help out

The news that Lord Rothschild, a man of impeccable taste, has acquired, through his Rothschild Family Trust, the life-sized horse sculpture named 'Perceval' by the sculptor Sarah Lucas takes further the English obsession with large-scale equestrian sculptures, indeed nothing less than a longstanding national tradition. There are further examples of the genre in the offing. Mark Wallinger has proposed a £2-million White Horse to go close to the A2 in Kent, and 50 m high. This one of several competitors for the site, and the final selection is imminent this autumn. Then Damien Hirst, who has a weakness for
four-legged beasties, is entering his 'The Incredible Journey', a zebra in formaldehyde, in his major Sotheby's sale this September (estimate £2-3million).
