Queen Victoria Memorial

Queen Victoria Memorial

Buckingham Palace, SW1
Green Park

As conceived in 1901 by Sir Aston Webb, the Queen Victoria Memorial was to be the symbolic hub of the Empire and the centerpiece for his entire Mall plan, which included Admiralty Arch and a new front for Buckingham Palace. The 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, Courage, etc.
