Columbus, Ohio: Disturbing Scrap Metal Horse

A sculpture of a rearing horse is made of mechanical metal parts in such a way that it looks as if its flesh is missing. Creative but unnerving.

Scrap Metal Horse

The entrance to the Animal Science Building at Ohio State University has a creepy horse sculpture on the sidewalk. It is a metal sculpture made from gears and what looks like car parts, and is a horse standing on its hind legs, mouth wide open, looking like it's ready to attack someone. There is no name plaque or artist's name anywhere near it. I first noticed it around October 2014, but it may have been here longer. It faces east and is best photographed at mid-day.
