Headless Horse. Ah Man!

It was quite unfortunate to see such a fixture come down in the Maxvorstadt neighborhood, but yesterday the Trojan horse outside the Museum of Antiquity came tumbling down after nearly 2 years. Actually, it was taken apart piece by piece, and at points with a chainsaw. The horse was the flagship of the Myths of Troy exhibit at the museum. The de-construction captured quite a crowd, much more than usual as the museum tends to be the “red-headed step-child” of the Glypotek across the street, which at this point had about 150 people basking in the sun on its steps. And yes, I can attest – the center of the horse was as hollow as could be – as of course it should be.

But why? did they re-do it? Great head shot on fg and body on bg...dramatic to some effect.
