This giant 35' tall and 70 ton sculpture of a the head of a horse depicted with its head down in the process of drinking is entitled Still Water. It is the creation of British sculptor Nic Fiddian-Green, who specializes in the sculpture of horse heads. It was installed in Hyde Park as part of a renovation program in 2009. The distinctive inward turning ears identifies the breed of horse as a Marwari horse from India.  Our tour guide described it as "The Godfather Sculpture".
