Galloping back to the heritage art precinct of Kala Ghoda is the black horse. Actually, this is a new one, titled ‘The Spirit of Kala Ghoda’ that was unveiled by Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. Kala Ghoda Association (KGA), which conducts the popular Kala Ghoda Arts Festival, was approached by the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai through Municipal Commissioner Ajoy Mehta to create a symbol for the area, reminiscent of its name as depicted in the equestrian statue of King Edward VII seated on a black horse. The KGA decided not to resurrect the past but to create a symbol for the future, minus the rider. What you have now is ‘The Spirit of Kala Ghoda’ embodying the essence of art, culture and the free flow of ideas. This striking bronze statue has been crafted by sculptor Shreehari Bhosle and designed by architect Alfaz Miller with critical inputs by Arzan Khambatta.
