The Victoria Memorial, between the Mall and Buckingham Palace, London. “There are two ideal figures, semi-draped, supported by lions British, of course: Peace, a splendidly proportioned female, carrying an olive-branch and pressing forward with a radiant look upon her face: and Agriculture, a nobly formed youth, laurel-crowned, and bearing a torch in his left hand as he advances with buoyant step.” [Click on these images to enlarge them.]
