  • This equestrian statue of William of Orange is a tribute to the William III of England and II of Scotland. The statues stands in tribute to the (still) partisan nature of religion in Scotland between the Protestants and Catholics. The statue is located in Cathedral Square Gardens, next to Glasgow Cathedral in the eastern end of Glasgow City Centre.The statue depicts William, curiously dressed in Roman attire in the manner of a roman emperor. Anachronisms aside, the statues does look majestic. Intriguingly, the horse`s tail is said to be designed to move in the wind by means of a ball and socket joint. A nice statue and worth seeing, especially if you're going to visit Glasgow Cathedral anyway.
