A HORSE sculpture attacked by vandals last year will soon be reinstalled on the Mordialloc foreshore.

The statue was the target of an attempted theft in July last year (“Horse doesn’t bolt”, The News, 10/7/19).

Kingston Council has confirmed that the damage to the horse statue has been repaired by restorer Peter Degaris, and that it is due to be reinstalled.

“Thanks to the hard work of art restorer Peter Degaris, The Horse sculpture by Julie Squires will shortly be returned to Mordialloc Foreshore following the vandalism attack last year,” a council Facebook post read.

“After a bit of a shoe shine, full sandblast, new patina and a wax finish The Horse will be back where it belongs!”
