This sturdy sculpture shows the King seated on horseback in a resolute but relaxed pose, with his horse reined in. The horse's stance, with arched neck and curved-in tail, is particularly characterful. When the bronze was restored, not only dirt but also layers of protective black and yellow paint and even car primer had to be removed from it (see Sharpe). These bear witness to earlier efforts to preserve the sculpture in its unusually exposed waterfront location. The details of the King's features and his regalia can now be seen more clearly.

Thanks for my clicks and comments for reflecting on the Beatles, as ever, much appreciated...Wink

The composition is excellent, M and the angle of the shot is just spot on.
Impressive how you've captured Liverpool's landmark within your image.
I really like this one.
