The Albert memorial has been likened to a wedding cake. Prince Albert [in gold] sits under a gild spire like caopy, and around the monument are four sculptured groups representing Europe ,Africa, Asia and America.
Africa has a camel and turbaned figures, Asia has an elephant and figures. Europe has a cow with various crowned figures , and America has a bison.
