Left: Peace, which depicts an angelic figure standing above kneeling warriors, one a Roman soldier, the other at out left an ancient Briton. Right: Charity, the iconography of which differs considerably from the more traditional figure of a mother nursing a child.

Two other views of the statue, including the detail of medals and braid on the king's uniform. [Photograph of the sculptor's signature.]
