A Rockstar North easter egg, it's a reference to the statue of the Duke of Wellington located in Glasgow, Scotland. People often put a traffic cone on the head of the statue for a laugh.

Taken from Wikipedia:

The equestrian Wellington Statue, most often featured with a traffic cone on its head, on Royal Exchange Square in Glasgow, Scotland, is one of the city's most iconic images.

  • It's not the only statue that regularly gets this treatment. Putting traffic cones on monuments is popular woth drunk students all over the country. May 14, 2023 at 12:50
