Perth’s ‘Big Ben’ immortalized with commemorative statue

I have just returned from a visit with my Mom in Perth where the newest attraction (if you don’t count the town’s second Tim Horton’s, impressively built in “heritage” style at the foot of the Craig Street hill) is this sculpture of local Olympic hero Ian Millar and his now deceased horse Big Ben.

It is beautifully situated between the historic and eclectic Code’s Mill on the Park and Perth’s downtown Stewart Park, a showpiece in its own right spread out behind the 19th-century stone buildings of Gore and Foster Streets.
