Mannerheimin ratsastajapatsas, Helsinki, FI (12-1-2018)

Baron Carl Gustav Emil Mannerheim (1867-1951) was the Marshal of Finland, Protector (1918-19) and President of the Republic (1944-46). Mannerheim’s achievements as a soldier and a statesman have made him one of the most influential figures of the 20th century in Finnish history.

The statue was unveiled in 1960. Atop a red granite pedestal, the statue tops out at 40 feet high. Mannerheim sits atop a detailed horse which was based on one that he actually owned at the time.
