Owner description: The Renaissance man’s plans to sculpt a 24-foot bronze horse were never realized until an American sculptor created two models based on da Vinci’s drawings, one of which graces the Frederik Meijer Gardens.

After a brisk walk, we all were amazed by the horse. We want to return when we finally get some spring weather!

The horse is a fascinating object, some say it is not "art", but whatever it is–––it's huge, beautiful and an extraordinary creation. It's not a reproduction but one of the two originals in the world paid for by Fred Meijer and created by a great sculptor whose name, of course, I forget––a Japanese woman. The other is in Milan. The new Japanese Garden will be the best in the U. S will be the best in the country in 25 years when it matures and it's pretty outstanding now. Credit due to vision of Fred Meijer. Lots to see if you're into horticulture or sculpture.

Meijer Gardens and sculpture park is an excellent place to go on a beautiful sunny day in Grand Rapids, MI. There are outdoor gardens including a childrens garden and an asian garden and sculptures and indoor there is a rain forest garden and an arid plant garden. There are changing fine art exhibits and depending on the time of year, a butterfly garden.

That statue is a beautiful reproduction of the original. It is very impressive ... I always am taken aback when I see it. I'm not sure I will ever see the original, but not sure I have to after seeing this excellent representation.
