Genghis Khan

By TheURL  
Following on from my last post, and perhaps to make more sense of it, here are some more views of the statue. While most people took all the same shots of it, I was determined to find a more novel view. Now the stairs and elevator take you up inside the horse's rear legs, and then you climb the horse's neck to look back at his face. Once you've waited for all the selfie-takers to go back down, and appreciated that even with a wide-angle you still can't get it all in, I then wondered if a trip back to the main road might be worth the walk to see of the statue would line up inside the arch. As you can see from my previous post it does, and I doubt many visitors will have considered this possibility.

The versions show one of the exhibits inside the building, and some other views.

It's the second version that appeals to me, extracting some interesting detail from the whole sculpture and having the background scene behind it. I'm not sure how you got it, though.

If you look closely you can see that there are people on the horse's head - that's where I was when I took the shot in Version 2.
