Part of the Albert Memorial, Kensington Gardens, London, England. It was commissioned by Queen Victoria in memory of her beloved husband, Prince Albert who died of typhoid in 1861. Designed by the architect George Gilbert Scott, it was opened in 1872.

At the corners of the central area, and at the corners of the outer area, there are two allegorical sculpture programmes: four groups depicting Victorian industrial arts and sciences (agriculture, commerce, engineering and manufacturing), and four more groups representing Europe, Asia, Africa and The Americas at the four corners, each continent-group including several ethnographic figures and a large animal. (A camel for Africa, a bison for the Americas, an elephant for Asia and a bull for Europe.) This image depicts the "Africa" group by William Theed.

Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Chasing Pavements'.

Best wishes,
Philip

The light on v2 gives it a lovely relief, Philip. A while since I've been down there.

Two great shots - V2 has it slightly over V1 for me today, and thanks for another great narrative.

Good composition in both but V2 seems to work especially well. Great details in both images.

I don't know it because I never go to London. It's a wonderful all-round sculpture. V2 is my favourite, you have an interesting angle on it there, especially the camel, and a perfect sky background.
