Since the photo that accompanied a previous post about the equestrian statue in Davis Square disappeared during one of the periodic blog software upheavels here at the Gazette, I decided this week to present a new digital oil painting of said statue.

Davis Square is named for the statue, which depicts a dejected Sammy Davis Jr. glumly riding his horse away from the set of the Rat Pack movie, “Four For Texas,” when he discovered that he wasn’t going to be in it. Click the image to see it larger.
