Public Art : Mare and Foal Sculpture (La Reyna)

Sculptor : © Arthur Jacques LeDuc (1848-1918)

Date : Donated to the Royal Botanic Gardens in 1958.

Description : Bronze statues of a Mare, named La Reyna, and her foal overlooking the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. On the base are reliefs depicting training and racing scenes.

Location : Royal Botanical Gardens, Sydney, Australia

History Of the Mare and Foal Sculpture : The Mare and Foal sculpture by French Sculptor, Arthur Jacques Le Duc, was purchased in 1891. The mare’s name is La Reyna but the foal (so far as I can gather) has no name.

Inscription :

This statue was restored in June 2002 through a gift in honour of the late
Lady (Bernice Mitchell) Finley who loved these gardens.
