13 Victoria Memorial at Buckingham Palace in London, England

In 1911, Sir Aston Webb designed an elaborate approach to Buckingham Palace called The Mall. The epicenter of the grand entrance is the Victoria Memorial by Sir Aston Webb. It honors Queen Victoria who died in 1901 after a 63-year reign. At the top of the 82-foot tribute is a gilded statue of Winged Victory. Beneath this Greek goddess are an ensemble of marble sculptures including two of the queen plus eagles and allegories for Truth and Justice. Surrounding these are four bronze statues symbolizing Agriculture, Manufacture, Progress and Peace.
