Queen Anne’s Statue

There is a group of white marble figures that stand in front of St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. This group with Queen Anne, surrounded below by figures representing England, France, Ireland, and the North American Colonies is an exact replica of a group originally created in 1712.
The original creation sat for many years in a disgraceful state of neglect, with the Queen’s nose chipped off, and several legs and arms missing. The whole composition was cleared away, and an entirely new one put in its place in the late 1800s. The old lady is starting to show some wear again, but she still stands proudly above the four other figures.
