Sculpture at Piber Castle, Austria

In 2003 this palace was the location of a Styrian State exhibition named ‘Mythos Pferd’ which told about the history of horses. The sculpture of a black horse depicted above was part of the promotion for this exhibition.

People who would love to see more of the famous Lipizzan stallions are advised to drive and hike up to a nearby pasture which is the home of the young stallions during summer time.
