Near Ystrad Mynach in south Wales, we find a fantastic 200 metre long earth-sculpture of Sultan the Pit Pony.
This is the UKÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s largest figurative earth sculpture, and although IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not sure thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s actually much competition for that particular title, Sultan sure is impressive. I particularly like the way his ear sticks right up in the air!
Sultan definitely looks a lot more like a Stallion than a Pit Pony, and as it turns out, this work (by landscape sculptor Mick Petts) was actually named Sultan by the locals – after a famous Pit Pony that used to work in the old colliery.
ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s more info on Sultan at the Caerphilly County Borough Council website.
