"Queen Victoria Monument" Buckingham Palace Tip by fishandchips

Buckingham Palace, London: 423 reviews and 701 photos


This sculpture of Queen Victoria, seated, was done by Sir Thomas Brock and includes a gilded Victory atop a base of marble, surrounded by allegorical figures representing Victorian virtues, such as Truth, Constancy, Motherhood and Courage. It was completed in 1911. I'm not sure of the full story but the memorial has a New Zealand connection with some sort of dedication to this colony under each of the allegorical figures.
