“The Torchbearer” by Anna Hyatt Huntington at Brookgreen Gardens, South Carolina – a sculpture of a rider bearing a torch on a galloping horse.
A winged horse springs from a mass of clouds, forelegs bent and head lifted in the upward rush. He soars on massive wings, bearing a rider lightly stretched along his back.

“Riders of the Dawn” by Adolph Alexander Weinman at Brookgreen Gardens, Murrells Inlet.
The horses plunge forward, half rearing, with forelegs doubled and heads tossing. One rider leans back to draw a bow while the other turns sidewise, blowing a conch. Beneath the horses is the rayed disc of the rising sun, with water curling in scrolls around it and rising beneath the horses in plumes of spray.
