  • They are the Horses of Helios ~ said to have pulled the chariot of Helios across the sky to create sunshine.

    These beautiful creatures are magnificent to behold. I half expect them to break free from their fountain one day and crash across Piccadilly Circus, manes streaming in freedom.

    In the meantime, I try not to stand too close to them as they tend to smell a bit like wee.
