i have always had an affection for carousel horses. ever since i was a boy. no matter if they were rocking, swinging or only moving up and down. some are very old and valuable while others are modern and technically refined. besides their beautiful crafting they remind me of – and are synonym for – autumn and winter, fun fairs, candy floss, lemonade and gingerbread.
tivoli gardens in copenhagen is the right place to: they have several carousels and even more retired carousel horses on display all over the place.
