The Downhill Centaur

A merry centaur welcomed visitors to Downhill Palace in County Londonderry.

I wonder where this statue now stands.

This looks like a copy of the Furietti "Young Centaur". The original (Greek) is to be found in Rome's Capitoline Museum.

Here is a link with a picture.

Hi Paul,

I believe you're right! I'd love to know what became of the Downhill one.
