Businessman on a Horse (1989) by William McElcheran

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

To me this sculpture is poking fun of all the kings and generals depicted in heroic pose on their horses. Not a happy horse under the weight of his master.


One of William McElcheran's chubby businessmen, this bronze sculpture is hidden in small court yard at St Michael's College, U of T.

You have to know about it, to find it.

There is one more McElcheran sculpture in my gallery

We have several of his sculptures in the city (he is from nearby Hamilton)
