April 2014: Statues at the British Museum
Here's old man WIlliam Shakespeare
King Charles 1
Here's the man himself, Oliver Cromwell, who caused King Charles 1 to lose his head.
this is Anne Seymour Damer, a lady sculpturess, carved by her guru, Giuseppe Ceracchi. She is holding an allegory of Sculpture in her hands and you can just make out the tools of a sculptor at her feet. Quite a nice statue.
