Presented 1735 by Governor Macrae of Madras. Equestrian bronze of William III (as Emperor Constantine) on tall granite plinth. The horse's tail was hung on a ball and socket joint to move in the wind. The sculptor is unknown but a similar equestrian bronze of 1734 now in Hull was the work of Peter Scheemakers.
