The Horses of Saint Mark

The gilded bronze horses marveled for two millennia of a late classical Greek Quadriga once adorned the Imperial box at the Hippodrome in Byzantium. 1204 Venice holy warriors under Doge Enrico brought them as prey of the 4th crusade in the lagoon city. When they were drawn before the Basilica San Marco in the Height: and took their place above the main door in the middle of the façade of the Church, boundless enthusiasm took the onlookers on St. Mark's square. In the meantime, the horses are travelled: an international Tounee led them to Berlin.
