Ratsuhevosen muistomerkki / Memorial to a saddle horse

Juorumäki, Puotila, Vartiokylä • Helsinki • Artist Tuntematon/Okänd/Unknown
Published -

Little is known of this pile of stones in Helsinki. It is probable that it was intended as a memorial to a saddle horse but it is not known whether a horse has actually been buried beneath it. Its pedestal is a pile of natural stones, on top of which is a platform cut from black granite. An urn-like bowl used to be set on the platform but it has disappeared. The platform contains the text:" 9. Juni 1862" (June 9, 1862). The memorial is connected with the Puotila mansion.
