Chariot and horses.

Golden Chariot

There's a place to park at the second entrance to the industrial equipment supply business. They have fence in front of the display. When we stopped, there was lots of road construction going on.

Guess we can't refer to this as the "Golden" chariot, since all the paint has faded away.

Golden Chariot

The "gold" has pretty much tarnished into bronze at this point, although the reins still look to be shiny golden wire. It's located on the land of a surplus sales company -- which unfortunately appears to be relocating and selling the property. Let's hope that the Golden Chariot finds a welcoming new owner.

The Golden Chariot is actually bronze.

We'd assumed it was fiberglass painted gold, so the bronze revelation means this sculpture is worth, hmmm.

I've stopped at this place, as the owner in the "antique store" behind it sells used industrial equipment. This big statue is also for sale, for a few hundred thousand dollars.

A couple hundred grand? Wow, even more than the Trigger Finger of Pancho Villa, for sale elsewhere in Texas.

This is an update on the "lost" Golden Chariot, previously listed in Katy, Texas. I spotted the chariot while driving eastbound on I-10 on July 1, 2012. The chariot is currently displayed in front of an antique shop just east of Sealy, Texas.
