Next time you see a statue of a war hero on a horse, notice how many feet the horse has on the ground. If the horse has only three legs on the ground, the rider died of wounds suffered in war. If the horse has two legs in the air, the rider died during the battle. If the rider is not on the horse, but standing next to it, the horse died too. And, if the horse has all four feet on the ground and the rider is on the horse, the man is a hero who did not die during the war. These are international rules that sculptors follow.
