Madara Rider
(Мадарски конник)

The Madara Rider or Madara Horseman (Bulgarian: Мадарски конник, Madarski konnik) is an early medieval large rock relief carved on the Madara Plateau east of Shumen in northeastern Bulgaria, near the village of Madara. The monument is dated to about 710 AD and has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1979. The relief depicts a majestic horseman 23 m above ground level in an almost vertical 100 m high cliff. The horseman, facing right, is thrusting a spear into a lion lying at the feet of the horse.
