Summary:
The sculpture depicts five, thin, elongated male figures riding on horseback with their heads bowed and their hands down at their sides, rather than holding the reins. The horses walk almost in a line and their heads are straining forward. Each figure carries a long spear vertically on his proper right side. The sculpture is installed in a gravel-filled rectangle.
