If you drive on the road from Solothurn towards West, one of the first villages you pass through is Bellach: not a very large village and nothing really spectacular. Many engineering companies have settled there and I worked in this village for 30 years in a milling tool production company, as export clerk.
It is surrounded by farming land, and situated at the foot of the Jura mountains. It used to be quite a busy village bearing the main traffic towards West, ending in Geneva. However, today a motorway has been built and the traffic situation has improved. Since some time this sculpture decorates one of the roundabouts in Bellach. It shows an artistic design of a horse which is on the Bellach coat of arms. It is not a tourist centre of Switzerland, just a village where people live, and go about their daily life, with some small industries.
