Mustangs of Las Colinas

The galloping creatures in Irving, Texas represent the world's largest equestrian sculpture. The Mustangs of Las Colinas are captured in bronze as they move across a granite stream at Williams Square irving, Texas. African wildlife artist Robert Glen installed this spectacular piece in 1984, as a memorial to the heritage of Texas.

The Mustangs of Las Colinas sculpture recognizes that "Texas is not only a geographical place on this continent, but that it represents a distinctive spirit and way of life of a people who are committed to the freedoms of action, initiative and expression for each individual man and woman as no other culture before has exhibited."

Las Colinas is an area in Irving, Texas which has been transformed from the open grassland of the past into an urbanized community for a new generation of Texans. It was determined to create within Las Colinas a grand plaza, a gathering place for future generations.

In order to establish a unique identity for this urban space, the Mustangs of Las Colinas sculpture was created to capture the free spirit embodied in the heritage of Texas, and is featured as the centerpiece within Williams Square Irving, TX.

Recognizing that the vanguard of European civilization arriving in Texas centuries ago was first evidenced by the herds of wild mustang horses ranging north from Mexico, the larger than life Mustangs of Las Colinas create a glorious scene across a flow of water through the plaza of Williams Square Irving, TX.
