"London's Center"

England's first equestrian statue built in Renaissance style, the Equestrian statue of Charles I at Charing Cross was cast probably in the year 1633. Designed by Hubert Le Sueur, a noted French sculptor, the statue was commissioned by Richard Weston, Charles's Lord High Treasurer. The statue was originally built for Charles' Roehampton country house garden. It depicts him on horseback, wearing an armor demi-suit, sans a helmet. A scarf is tied across its chest on right hand. The king is portrayed carrying a baton in the same hand while he handles the horse reins in the left hand. This prominent statue is officially termed as London's official center.
