Queen Boadicea

Queen Boadicea by Thomas Thornycroft (1814-1885). Bronze. 1902. Westminster Bridge, London. Alfred Domett’s diary include the following mention of this work: “Thornycroft. . . shewed us his studio. His large group of Boadicea with her daughters beside her driving her chariot into battle, with the expression of one of the faces, looking forth into the 'hurly-burly' with a kind of daring awe, seemed very fine. Pity they don't find a place for the group on the top of one of our tame abortive-looking park porticoes or arches not very 'triumphal'. — (April 1, 1873).
