Outline for a Commons' Equestrian Statues image database (draft)


  • Make the Commons collection of images of equestrian statues accessible
  • Make visible comparison of different statues possible
  • Allow to search these by various criteria related to the statue, its accessories, and, especially, the photos.
  • Integrate Wikipedia lists of statues and prepare for future Wikidata features

Why equestrian statues?[edit]

  • The number of statues isn't infinite.
  • Photos are fairly frequent
  • Wikipedia provides lists of statues
