Sing a Song of Sixpence popped into my head when I first looked at this...... I know, too much caffeine again! Super set of this impressive sculpture in such beautiful surroundings. Hard to choose one, but if pushed V1. It seems as if they are surveying their kingdom but with a togetherness implied by their body language.

What a great set
laughed with the feet only
I think you led with the right one
They seem to be overlooking their estate with smug satisfaction

They seem comfortable in their setting. There's a similar work at YSP, I've found it difficult to get the background right there. I need to go back and try again.
Love V3, that's my sort of shot.

I share the preference for V1 already expressed, though in truth I love them all. It must be the impression of "monarchs of all they survey", which is rather more imposing than our back garden!
Running it very close is V5, for which you have chosen the perfect angle. I'd love to try a study of the hands alone, they are exceptionally expressive.
