Horses whose Heads are Oil Drilling Pumps

In the intertidal zone in the port of Arrecife, at low tide, we noticed this temporarily installed sculpture by Jason de Caires Taylor. ”The Rising Tide is a sculpture depicting four riders on their saddles, horses whose heads are oil drilling pumps, reflecting the great threat that hangs over the planet and especially on the seas and Oceans” (Centers for Arts, Culture and Tourism (CACT), Link)
